Course Description

The EPIC Clear Education Specialist Induction Credential Program is designed to provide an option for teachers to clear their preliminary credentials through a CTC accredited program. The clear induction program provides a two-year, individualized, job-embedded system of mentoring, support and professional learning that can begin in the teacher’s first year of teaching.

Course Outline

The Clear Induction Program is based on the Action Research Cycle of Plan, Teach, Reflect, Apply. The Action Research will be practical and intended to address a specific problem in a classroom, school or community. It is a cyclical not linear process. It is focused on the “how to” approach to solving a problem

Within this cycle is

  • Inquiry into Teaching and Learning
  • Data Collection: Assessment of Teaching and Learning
  • Data Collection: What is my Context?

 

In the two year program there is a portfolio which covers all of the California Standards for the Teaching Profession (CSTPs) and is comprised of the elements of the Action Research Cycles, the Individual Learning Plan (ILP) (developed within the first 60 days) and Collaborative Coaching Logs. The Clear Induction Candidate has, on average, regular weekly contact with their coach for individualized support and mentoring.

 

Notes

The candidate is matched with a mentor(s) within 30 days of admission into the program according to credentials held, grade level and/or subject area, as appropriate to the participating teacher’s employment.

Prerequisites

Eligible candidates must hold a Preliminary Education Specialist Credential and have a verification of employment, or offer of employment, in the credential to be cleared.
