The VCU Center for Teacher Leadership offers an exciting year of New Teacher Center mentor/coach workshops – the Professional Learning Series – designed to support the instructional practice of those teachers who need it most!

Please note: This is a series of workshops; only Instructional Mentoring is available as a standalone. All other workshops are sequential and require all previous workshops as prerequisites.

Year 1: Mentors/Coaches Learn To:

  • Engage teachers in instructional cycles designed to advance their ability to plan, teach, and analyze student work in order to provide opportunities for all students to meet rigorous, grade-level content standards
  • Use a strengths-based approach to assess, respond to, and accelerate teacher practice using New Teacher Center’s research and inquiry-based Formative Assessment and Support System
  • Effectively create a collegial partnership that provides actionable, meaningful feedback to improve student learning
