100Kin10 Project Team: Supporting and Developing Mentor Teachers (2019)

Building on last cycle, this Project Team's goal is to develop trainings for mentors, mentees, principals, and administrators. Their members include Purdue University, University of Southern Indiana, Barrington 220, Great Hearts, Penn State University College of Education, and Public Education & Business Coalition (PEBC).

Last cycle, this team developed an actionable framework based on best practices for how to establish a STEM mentor teacher network in your state -- including identifying, selecting, training, and compensating mentors and mentees.

This year, they’d like to build out a section on mentor training with training modules and collaborative investigations, and create a new training for administrators and principals to foster support for mentors and mentees.
