Description & Coverage
Description:

Teacher retention is an area of great concern across the globe as it appears many teachers leave the field after only a few years, especially those serving low-income students. There is a growing gap from preparation to practice. Not only must educator preparation programs (EPPs) be diligent in utilizing systematically effective methods of preparing novice teachers, but schools must also be cognizant of the need for continued mentorship and quality professional development that matches the unique needs of their novice teachers. When novice teachers enter the profession, they must be offered explicit and scaffolded opportunities for continued learning in order to bridge the theoretical aspects of teaching learned in a preparation program to the practical application of a classroom/school setting, as these opportunities differ from the needs of veteran teachers.

Collaborative Approaches to Recruiting, Preparing, and Retaining Teachers for the Field provides a collection of theoretical, application, and research-based information regarding a variety of viewpoints and strategies that educator preparation programs must be cognizant of in order to meet the varied and individualized needs of novice teachers so that the academic, behavioral, and/or social-emotional needs of their students are effectively supported. Overall, this book recognizes the constant need for improvement within educator preparation programs and school systems, showcases that teacher retention is a concern across the United States and globally, and shows how educator preparation programs and schools/districts must reach across the boundaries of content-specificity and collaborate to prepare teacher candidates most effectively. Covering topics such as teacher retention, collaborative partnerships, and growth mindset, this book is essential for educational preparation faculty, educational leadership faculty, P-12 general and special education teachers, administrators, government officials, pre-service teachers, students, researchers, and academicians.
