  • Developmental plan should identify goals/objectives; set time-lines and outline meeting schedules between mentor and mentee. Meetings should ideally take place once per fortnight thereafter once per month.

  • Mentor should assist mentee in developing their teaching portfolio

  • Monitor progress against agreed goals and time-lines

  • Affirm and develop the strengths and work on weaknesses of mentee


  • Review mentee’s professional goals and adjust development plan accordingly. Plans should ideally be discussed at the beginning of the year and reviewed at the end

  • Introduce mentee to formal and informal collegial & information networks

  • Support or direct mentee to areas that can provide specialized support where necessary

  • Share information relating to teaching & learning and research

  • Assist mentee in understanding policies & procedures of your district


  • Be available on reasonable basis to support mentee in all areas related to their position

  • Encourage and assist mentee to develop their research profile (conference papers; book reviews; journal articles; books and grant applications)

  • Mentors should keep records of their meetings with the mentee (date, duration and brief summary) and provide annual interim report to your principal

  • Did you participate last Year?


  • Stands for Mid-continent Research for Education and Learning.

  • It is a research and development corporation in Denver.

  • Dr. Robert Marzano, Dr. Debra Pickering, and Dr. Jane Pollack wrote a book called Classroom Instruction that Works while they worked for McREL.

  • The strategies come from that book.

  • They are often referred to as Marzano’s strategies, but technically McREL “owns” them.

Meta analysis

  • Marzano, Pickering, and Pollock wanted to know what strategies were the most effective teaching strategies.

  • Instead of designing a new study, they searched existing research and identified 9 strategies that work.

  • Called a “meta-analysis” because they analyzed so many studies to derive the conclusions.


  • Are you Highly Effective?

  • Your Principal is on your TEAM

  • ASK questions

  • Use your Mentor(s)
