University of Brighton Mentor Responsibilities 1. Student Induction Awareness of school policies and protocol Safeguarding policies and key staff 2. Mentoring To enable each student to make maximum progress through: Regular meetings (weekly) to agree, monitor and challenge ITDP/action plan. Overview of ITDP is in file, specific detailed action plans in student’s e-portfolio Completion of three formal observations (one of which is shared with the placement tutor), provide lesson grade, written and verbal feedback (PA form PIE Handbook p.82) Identifying opportunities for meeting targets Monitoring file and e-portfolio on a weekly basis and meeting with student each week to discuss progress (student to keep record of meeting) Completion of placement paperwork PB (Interim) and PC (Final) to capture the achievements of individual students *
University of Brighton Prior to an observation and on a weekly basis, look in student’s e-portfolio : IDTP/Action plans and weekly evaluations: what are the current priorities for this student? Is there a link between the two? How do these reflect the feedback provided so far? Is the student being proactive in setting targets and developing actions? As part of an observation and feedback: Observe lesson and use ‘Lesson Observation Criteria’ (p 27-28) to guide your judgement. Record grade and formative feedback on PA form Sample a sequence of lesson plans, class assessments and evaluations- does lesson evaluation and assessment inform future planning? Ask student to talk about their profile child and share their assessments for this child. Check student’s progress in relation to key Placement Tasks e.g. phonics A few reminders:
University of Brighton Planning & Assessment File Section 1: ITDP/Action Plan This overview needs to be reviewed and up- dated weekly in the e- portfolio and an updated copy printed out and in file each week. The Action Planning tool in e-portfolio is then used to produce specific action plans to develop these actions Targets linked to specific standards (identified prior to the placement) Actions (negotiated with the mentor at the beginning of the placement and reviewed / amended at weekly intervals) Review DateFurther action needed To establish a clear, positive ethos to classroom discipline TS1 TS7 Find out children’s needs and interests Find out about school behaviour management policies Develop methods of proactive behaviour management Week 2Need to work on my use of body language and positioning when resolving conflicts between pupils
