Reflection is a Key Piece of Successful Induction Programs

Ann Stark talks about why reflection is such an important process for induction

A video clip where veteran teacher, Ann Stark, talks about how to use data from reflection to deepen the relationship between mentors and new teachers to see growth, not just for the teacher but the students as well.


Ann Stark:

One of the key things about the induction program is reflection. Not just teach, teach, teach, but use the data to drive your instruction, reflect on why the students are doing well, and have those collaborative conversations so that the new teacher, under the guidance of their mentor, is able to figure out where their strengths are and their areas for growth. And then together, they can come up with a plan to work through those hopefully to see growth in not just themselves, but also in their student.
