We bring together district administrators, educators, researchers, policymakers, and more with a collective investment in preparing and supporting our nation’s educators so that students succeed.

Teacher Effectiveness = Student Success: Professional Growth that Advances Student Learning (Professional Growth, Mentoring, and Coaching)
Instruction Beyond the Classroom: Aligning the Vision School-Wide (Instructional and School Leadership, School Culture, and Optimal Learning Environments)

Part 2: WEBINAR: A Baseline for Student Success: Focusing mentor practices on instruction and learning to increase student achievement
Over the last 20 years, New Teacher Center (NTC) has worked with teachers, teacher leaders, schools and school districts, researchers, state agencies, policymakers, and a range of educational institutions to define the characteristics and fundamental elements of high-quality mentoring. For the first time, NTC is publicly releasing these research-based, proven characteristics in the Mentor Practice Standards.
The Mentor Practice Standards identify the characteristics of high-quality, effective mentoring practices that increase student achievement. These standards accelerate the development of new teacher effectiveness, improve teacher retention, build teacher leadership, increase student learning, and support equitable outcomes for every learner.
This webinar built off our prior conversation on the Teacher Induction Program Standards and worked to provide:
- An overview of the Mentor Practice Standard
- An understanding of how quality mentor standards can increase student achievement
- A framework for how these standards can be implemented in districts and schools across the country
A Baseline for Student Success: Designing and Implementing an Evidence-Based and Standards-Based Teacher Induction Program
Thank you for your interest in our Education Week webinar. Over the last 20 years, New Teacher Center (NTC) has worked with state agencies, school districts, policy-making organizations, and a range of educational institutions to define the characteristics and fundamental elements of high-quality induction programs that accelerate the development of new teacher effectiveness, improve teacher retention, strengthen teacher leadership, increase student learning, and support equitable outcomes for every learner.
NTC’s Teacher Induction Program Standards (TIPS) build upon and are informed by those many years of study, consultation, collaboration, and program implementation across many contexts throughout the United States and abroad.
