Mentor-Mentee March Meeting

Mini Lesson

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?

Work Session:
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?

When reviewing student work, teams of teachers should:
  • 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.
  1. How can we improve or change our instruction to help the student who is doing poor work?
  2. How do we help the student who is doing average work to produce excellent work?
  3. 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:
  1. What were the three questions that most students got wrong?
  2. What were the most common errors students made?
  3. What types of misunderstandings in thinking did the mistakes reveal?
  4. 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.
