Creating a Mentoring Plan to Improve Teaching Practices

  For this assignment, spend time discussing and planning with your mentor teacher on the Mentoring Plan to Improve Teaching Practice to create a mentoring plan for the mentee teacher you observed in the Topic 3 clinical field experience. As you create the plan, collaborate with your mentor teacher to ensure you are communicating in a way that builds trust and rapport. 

The plan should include the following:

  • Goal for the mentee to improve their instructional practice.
  • Skills, knowledge, or behaviors of the mentee that will benefit from further development.
  • Action steps for the mentee to reach the goal, including milestone deadlines. 
  • List of support resources recommended for the mentee.
  • Identify possible obstacles the mentee may encounter.
  • Establish criteria for success; how the mentee knows they have successfully reached their goal.
  • A tool to provide feedback on the mentoring process to ensure the mentee has the necessary skills and knowledge to grow.

Support the plan with 3-5 scholarly resources.

At the end of your mentoring plan, reflect, in 250-500 words, on how you will practically and effectively encourage the mentee to change or improve their practice. Additionally, provide strategies you will use to motivate the mentee and promote self-efficacy.
