Mentor Forums provide a community environment for mentors that are a part of the Arizona K12 Center's Master Teacher Program. We also invite others who are familiar with or use the New Teacher Center tools to attend. Participants connect new learning opportunities, in addition to revisiting questions around the mentor learning cycle. These forums allow mentors an opportunity to enter into problem-solving dialogue so that they can best assist the newest members of the profession.

Mentor Forums provide mentors with a venue to develop their skills and understanding of adult learning, which is a key component of professional development. Forums provide a professional learning environment where mentors can reflect on their own practice with support from colleagues.

Each Mentor Forum is uniquely designed and tailored to provide current research and relevant topics, which directly relate to the practice of mentoring.

Participants will:

  • Practice using the NTC Online Tools to support their mentoring practice.
  • Review and learn strategies to embed the InTASC standards into best practices.
  • Review best practices surrounding the Five Core Propositions of the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards.
  • Utilize the Professional Learning Plan Toolkit to set goals.
  • Role-play, while practicing mentoring language and skills to support the beginning teacher.
Additional Information: 

Registration includes training, materials, a light lunch and the book, What Teachers Should Know and Be Able To Do.

*Please note: This training takes place during four, three-hour sessions.
