Intensive Mentoring in Jewish Day Schools

By Mark S. Silk

Coalition for the Advancement of Jewish Education (CAJE), 2006

The author describes the model of teacher support developed by the Jewish New Teacher Project (JNTP) in order to help new teachers advance in skills and knowledge, especially during their first two years on the job. Key components of the model include mentoring and a Formative Assessment System with which mentor and mentee can keep track of progress. JNTP mentor models include in-house mentors, visiting mentors and half-release mentors. The authors cite research indicating that this mode improves both teacher competence and student achievement. In Jewish Education News, Spring 2006.
