Description:

The paper investigates and studies the effects of TIPs on academic outcomes for at-risk secondary students. The research attempts to answer the following question: Do TIPs improve the academic outcomes for at-risk secondary students? The paper tests the proposition that effectively designed TIPs provide the support necessary to permit new teachers at the secondary level to develop the classroom management skills that will facilitate and promote learning among at-risk students.

From the Paper:

"New teachers are the most susceptible to the trap of losing control over the classroom by focusing specific aspects of the curriculum or specific teaching approaches, as opposed to managing the classroom with a focus on student learning. New teachers require support to develop effective classroom management skills. One approach to providing such support is the implementation of effective teacher induction programs (TIPs). TIPs are, by definition, support programs for new teachers. The terms "new teacher" and "beginning teacher" typically refer to teachers with less than five-years in service as a teacher. This definition, however, is not set in stone. The federal education bill enacted during the second Clinton Administration defined the term "beginning teacher" as a teacher with less than three-years in-service as a teacher (Feiman-Nemser, 2001)."
