Section 4: What's Next?
Module 1 Summary
In Module 1, you were introduced to the many ways in which you may work as a mentor supporting early field hours students, teacher candidates in traditional and on the job internships, and new teachers. The purpose of Module 1 was to situate your work as a mentor in the broader landscape of teacher preparation and induction, in your school and community, and in your own personal beliefs, pedagogy, and life experiences. As you reflect on Module 1 and prepare for Module 2, consider the ways in which your notions of mentoring, and more specifically, reflective mentoring, are becoming more nuanced.
Before you continue on to Module 2, take a moment to complete the form below. Scroll down to view and type directly in the form embedded on this page. After completing the email and name form fields, click "Next" to continue to the reflection section. Here you will begin to draft "A Letter to my Future Mentee" — a summative project that you will build on after each module. As you reflect, consider the context and nature of your mentoring role, as well as the role of the mentee(s) with whom you may be working. See the video below for an example of reflective letter writing.
After completing the form below, remember to click "Submit" to save your answers. You will receive a copy of your responses via email. Please add your responses to your Module 1 Companion Guide, as you will build on these reflections at the end of each online module and in any future Advanced Mentor Training (synchronous) sessions you attend.
