Supporting the Next Generation: Effective Mentoring and Coaching of Novice Teachers
Grounded in research on effective teacher mentoring and induction, this course emphasizes data-based mentoring strategies, providing actionable feedback, and the importance of a strong mentor-novice relationship that promotes a novice teacher’s instructional practice. Teachers enrolled in this course will develop as instructional leaders and engage in reflection about their own practice, especially in using collaborative inquiry techniques to help novices improve on their ability to use assessment to drive instruction. We will be using the Danielson Framework as a coaching and feedback tool to support new teachers through effective strategies.
Participants who are currently working as mentors/coaches and those who aspire to serve as mentors in the future are ideal candidates for the course. In addition, participants who successfully complete this course will receive mentor certification from the NYC DOE Mentoring and Induction Unit.
Participants who successfully complete this course will demonstrate knowledge of core mentoring stances and effectively providing actionable, specific feedback through data-based coaching conversations.
