Beginning Teacher Seminar 3: Reflective Practice

This is third in the series of beginning teacher (ongoing orientation) seminars available to districts to support local efforts in meeting PI 34 requirements, which require districts to provide “ongoing orientation” to beginning educators (in their first three years of teaching). Comprehensive induction programs include professional learning within learning communities for beginning teachers guided by research, teaching and content standards, district instructional priorities, and the developmental needs of beginning teachers to advance quality instruction and the learning of every student. (NTC Teacher Induction Program Standards, 2018).

Districts and/or Cooperating Education Support Agencies (CESA) can use this resource to facilitate local professional learning.
