Mentor-Mentee March Meeting
With your table mates, discuss the following 3 questions after viewing the short video clip.
- What do students learn through collaborative group work?
- How does Ms. Hobbs use different grouping strategies for different purposes?
- What can you learn from Ms. Hobbs about creating effective groups?
Navigate back to the "First Days of School" community & follow the instructions below.
Closing Activity: Mentors, this year wouldn't be the same without your guidance! Your mentees truly appreciate you all!
Ticket out the door: In the center of the star, create a symbol or illustration of your mentor/mentee relationship this year.
Optional Extension: How do successful teams know when students have mastered the content?
- Develop a set of questions that your team regularly uses to analyze the data.
- Look at the questions that you can adapt from the chapter.
- How can we improve or change our instruction to help the student who is doing poor work?
- How do we help the student who is doing average work to produce excellent work?
- What tools for learning can we prescribe to inspire each student to move up the achievement ladder?
- Consider brainstorming other questions that help your team zero‐in on the specific data you have collected in a grid, such as:
- What were the three questions that most students got wrong?
- What were the most common errors students made?
- What types of misunderstandings in thinking did the mistakes reveal?
- Which students had the most and least trouble with this assignment?
- Finally, develop a protocol for how to brainstorm solutions to address the problems in student learning revealed in the team’s conversation about student results.
- The solutions can address changes in the curriculum, instruction, time for learning objectives, grouping of students,additional tutoring or support time, or other solutions.
