Join your colleagues from across the nation at Just ASK’s Mentoring in the 21st Century® Institute in Washington, D.C., April 25, 26, and 27, 2017. The goal of this three-day institute, limited to 25-35 participants, is to assist educators in building their capacity for supporting new teachers in ways that help them be fully qualified and fully satisfied.
- Fully qualified means that both new teachers and experienced teachers new to the district can demonstrate competency with the professional performance standards identified by their district and can, therefore, have a significant impact on student learning.
- Fully satisfied means that both new teachers and experienced teachers new to the district feel supported, valued, and productive as people and professional educators and, therefore, not only stay in the teaching profession but continue to teach in the schools to which they are assigned.
- Who are the new teachers?
- What are their challenges and concerns?
- What can we do to support new teachers around these challenges and concerns?
- When do these challenges and concerns develop?
- What are formats for mentoring interactions?
- What are our peer observation possibilities?
- What should we be looking for in classrooms?
- What constitutes growth-producing feedback?
- How do we all work together to support new teachers?
