EDU 688 EDU688 Week 4 DQ 2 Training New Staff (Ashford)
Training New Staff. Daresh and Daresh (2013) report that the success of school change and school improvement is closely connected to the work being done by dedicated and talented new teachers. Besides being a school change issue, recruiting and retaining new teachers is a budget issue as well as the cost of replacing teachers leaving the school district continues to spiral. Thus, it is important that the school district have an effective training and support program to initiate and support new hires.
Initial Post – Read Chapters 2 through 6 of Daresh and Daresh (2013). In your hypothetical role as school principal, you need to consider training the staff new to your school. In your initial post:
Describe a process to guide new teachers after being hired. What do they need to know and who can help?
Explain what the training must contain in order to prepare new teachers to be effective educators that
support student learning.
Discuss how this training will impact the overall performance of new teachers in terms of ensuring the
success of all students.
Guided Response – Respond to at least two peers. In your replies, consider asking questions of your peers about their responses to encourage further conversation. Reflect on your peers’ ideas regarding their training processes to guide new teachers after being hired. Relate your results to those of your peers. Evaluate their connection of teacher performance to the techniques used when training new staff members.
Though two replies is the basic expectation, for deeper engagement and learning, you are encouraged to provide responses to any comments or questions others have given to you including the instructor, before the last day of the learning week. This will further the conversation and provide you with opportunities to demonstrate your content expertise, critical thinking, and real-world experiences with this topic.
