Illini Central Induction & Mentoring Handbook
Illini Central provides an induction program, not just a mere mentor-buddy system for newly employed teachers. The IC Induction-Mentoring Handbook is the beginning of inductee preparation. Induction workshops, including an Induction Day before school begins, complement the insights of the IC Induction-Mentoring Handbook. The two year IC mentoring program is one portion of the induction. The mentoring program focuses on inductee teaching competencies using Charolette Danielson’s “Framework for Professional Practice” (1996). Mentors are trained on eight mentor competencies using Coaching & Mentoring First-Year & Student Teachers by India J. Podsen and Vicki M. Denmark. To further the implementation of this program, scheduled classroom observations occur. Also, the IC mentoring program supports and encourages teachers through weekly and monthly meetings that reinforce the inductee and mentor competencies.
