About this course:
A key component of the teacher induction program is its job-embedded system of mentoring support and professional learning. The UCLA Extension mentor that is assigned to each participating teacher is responsible for coordinating with the teacher, school site administrators, and program instructors to support the teacher's planning and implementation of an individual learning plan, and to provide coaching and ongoing support for improving instructional practices. Participating teachers receive an average of at least one hour per week of individualized support throughout each academic year during which they are enrolled in the induction program, and they maintain documentation of all support activities. Participating teachers who have been assigned a UCLA Extension mentor must be enrolled concurrently in this course while completing the other induction program coursework.
