Abstract

Collaboration among novice special education teachers and their general education colleagues can bolster the impact of induction programs for all novice teachers, including special education teachers. Strong, supportive collaborative structures also can influence novice special education teacher retention. A Professional Learning Community—the topic of this Brief—is a promising collaborative structure for engaging these novice teachers in the professional school culture.
