Mentoring New Teachers is a professional development workshop with three  modules that cover how to build trust with a new teacher, how to respond to diverse learners, and how to become a better mentor. Each module includes three lessons with multimedia resources. Each lesson will take about 60-90 minutes to complete. Readings will require more time. Some readings are required, some are supplemental. Some readings are provided, some require purchase or subscription. Remember, the modules are self-paced, which should afford time to collect them from a library or inter-library loan. Lessons can be printed or saved as PDFs.

For example, the first module, Building Trust, covers building a relationship with a new teacher, expectations vs reality, and coaching language and techniques. The first lesson, Trust and Relationship Building is in five parts. After an introduction and list of objectives, the lesson provides a case study video (5:02) with response questions and summary. A knowledge section follows in which teachers will find articles, brief videos with expert advice, brief video demonstration, and an activity. A review and reflect section follows with questions on materials and attitudes and perspectives. A glossary completes the lesson’s resources.

Mentoring New Teachers is one of three workshops. The other two are Mentoring School Leaders and Preparing New School Leadership.
