  • Build collaborative, trusting relationships with and among beginning teachers.
  • Use the Collaborative Assessment Log to assess and advance teaching practice.
  • Use standards and criteria to anchor assessments about teaching and learning.

Content will advance and refresh mentors’ abilities to support beginning teacher development in the following essential areas:

  • Creating a positive and productive learning environment.
  • Planning and implementing standards based instruction.
  • Using formative assessment and providing meaningful student feedback.
  • Building and sustaining a “triad of support” and communication between the mentor, site administrator, and beginning teacher strategies that foster resilience, empathy, and compassion in teachers and students

The professional development also includes new videos and new opportunities to practice and process the information.
