2.4090 Administration-organized Interventions in School-based Problems.
This paper evaluates an effective method for an intervention in a school setting. Here, an administrator, the school principal, is assisting with a first-year teacher who is having trouble teaching reading to his 3rd- grade classroom. Based on research supporting proactive principals, and "career-ladder" programs in organizations, this essay discusses a mentorship-based intervention that assists the new teacher in developing his reading curriculum, and as well in providing the mentor-teacher with career incentives for his/her participation in the apprenticeship. In this context, the principal is regarded as being actively involved in the school activities, in levels of staff development as well as classroom curriculum. 5 pgs. Bibliography lists 4 sources.
