In each module, mentors and beginning teachers complete the four-step coaching process:
- Mentors and beginning teachers will engage in a pre-data conversation in which they will determine a focus area for the next event(s)
- The mentor will collect data on the focus area. Data include test scores, background information on students, lesson plans, assignments, and student work.
- Then the mentor analyzes the data, determining the competencies that the beginning teacher demonstrated and the beginning teacher's current abilities.
- Then the beginning teacher and mentor have a post-data conversation.
