"All beginning teachers face significant challenges during their induction into the teaching profession. This book provides a cogent, thoughtful, and practical guide to working in the areas of teacher induction and mentoring, and is a must read for academics, program developers, and practitioners alike."
"Carol Bartell offers us an eminently practical and comprehensive roadmap to coach and assist our beginning teachers away from an unhappy ending."
"Bartell argues that induction is about more than retaining teachers. It is about helping all teachers become more professional and better at what they do . . . and, most important, it is about improving student learning."
"Bartell has done an excellent job of pulling together the research on induction and mentoring. She uses examples drawn from a variety of studies, and provides guidance for those who wish to develop or improve an existing induction program. State and district leaders would be well advised to read this book."
"A practical, no-nonsense and principled guide condensing decades of expertise into plain terms advice."
