Many professions, law and medicine among the best-known, place student apprentices in real-world, clinical situations early in their training. Traditionally, many beginning teachers have entered the classroom with only minimal opportunity to interact with students and learn from master teachers. In its 1996 report, What Matters Most: Teaching for America's Future, the National Commission on Teaching and America's Future recommended restructuring the first years of teaching to resemble a medical residency, where new teachers could be mentored by experienced practitioners.
