Literature Review on Induction and Mentoring Related to Early Career Teacher Attrition and Retention
This literature review focuses on mentoring and induction programs as a solution to what is defined as the problem of early career teacher attrition and retention. The authors found multiple differences in both induction and mentoring programs around issues such as who offers them, the length of time for which they are offered, whether they are government mandated, whether mentors receive further education for the role, how mentors and mentees are matched and so on. The authors also found that principals were seen to have a pivotal role to play in the success of early career induction programs.

Reflecting on the Use of Metaphor: Two Professors' Processes of Discovery
The paper summarizes the literature concerning the use of visual and textual metaphors. It also describes outcomes of a project designed to help teacher education candidates begin integrating their personal beliefs about teaching with their growing professional knowledge and emergent practice. By using metaphors, teacher educators have the opportunity to help candidates solidify convictions and meanings and uncover “tacit or unarticulated” beliefs (Clandinin & Connelly, 1995, p. 6) that can lead to frame conflict (Reddy, 1993), that is, dueling metaphors.
