“Those who expect moments of change to be comfortable and free of conflict have not learned their history.”
Designed by the nationally renowned New Teacher Center of Santa Cruz, California, this series of 8 days of professional development builds on more than 20 years of experience by the New Teacher Center in supporting beginning teachers. The New Teacher Center serves as a national center for dissemination of information on new teacher support and provides consulting services for educational entities interested in developing or refining programs of support for beginning teachers.
Why the Santa Cruz Model?
The sequenced curriculum focuses on building the knowledge, skills, and understandings critical for new and veteran teacher mentors and coaches in a range of program contexts. Although the workshops do not presume prior mentoring or coaching experience, the course content offers learning opportunities that are appropriate for a wide range of experience levels. While not specifically designed for program leaders, they may wish to attend with a team of their mentors in order to adapt the strategies and approaches to their unique program context.
*Unless otherwise stated on the registration form, all workshops will take place at the VCU Center for Teacher Leadership, 3600 West Broad Street, Richmond, Virginia.*
Looking for research-based ways to support your teachers in maximizing student achievement?
The VCU Center for Teacher Leadership is offering an exciting year of all newly-revised Santa Cruz 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.
