Induction is designed to support you in building on what you learned in your preparation program. It will challenge you to advance your practice and help your students thrive. Through the supportive context of Induction, you have the opportunity to continue on your journey toward becoming a highly skilled and reflective educator.
How do I complete Induction?
In each year of Induction's two-year program, you will develop a year-long inquiry through an Individual Learning Plan (ILP), which focuses on a specific aspect of your teaching. Through the Inquiry you will:
- Utilize standards, collect evidence and assess your teaching practice
- Employ strategies to provide all students equitable access to the core curriculum
- Appropriately differentiate instruction within your inquiry focus
- Examine the effects of instructional design-making on student learning
- Build a partnership with families and colleagues to support student success
- Create an identity-safe learning environment that supports all students in reaching their full potential
- Develop as a culturally competent educator
Each year you will attend professional development events and meetings that support your individualized inquiry and program completion. Your Support Provider will meet with you on a weekly basis to engage in inquiry-related activites that will build your teaching and reflective skills.
