Leadership Guide for Teacher Induction
The Leadership Guide for Teacher Induction is a tool to help the instructional leader (either a lead administrator or someone with sufficient authority to have an impact on the induction process) better understand his or her role in the induction process. It provides guidance on how to support the mentor(s) and beginning teacher(s) through each step of the Teacher Induction Pathway (http://lincs.ed.gov/publications/te/pathway.pdf). It gives guidance on using components of the Adult Education Teacher Induction Toolkit (http://lincs.ed.gov/programs/teachereffectiveness/toolkit).
Instructional leaders play a critical role in shaping the instructional environment of the adult education program. This guide details the activities and approaches the instructional leader uses to lead and support the mentor and beginning teacher as they work through the Teacher Induction Pathway. It provides reflection opportunities for the instructional leader to determine how to increase the mentor and beginning teacher pair’s success.

- A checklist of the activities the mentor and beginning teacher are responsible for completing enables the instructional leader to support and guide the mentor and beginning teacher through the tools of the Adult Education Teacher Induction Toolkit.
