Part 2: WEBINAR: A Baseline for Student Success: Focusing mentor practices on instruction and learning to increase student achievement
Lynn Kepp (moderator)
Senior VP of Strategic Partnerships
May 15, 2018; 4-5pm ET
Over the last 20 years, New Teacher Center (NTC) has worked with teachers, teacher leaders, schools and school districts, researchers, state agencies, policymakers, and a range of educational institutions to define the characteristics and fundamental elements of high-quality mentoring. For the first time, NTC is publicly releasing these research-based, proven characteristics in the Mentor Practice Standards.
The Mentor Practice Standards identify the characteristics of high-quality, effective mentoring practices that increase student achievement. These standards accelerate the development of new teacher effectiveness, improve teacher retention, build teacher leadership, increase student learning, and support equitable outcomes for every learner.
This webinar will build off our prior conversation on the Teacher Induction Program Standards and work to provide:
• An overview of the Mentor Practice Standard
• An understanding of how quality mentor standards can increase student achievement
• A framework for how these standards can be implemented in districts and schools across the country
