What is a Mentor Check-in?
Common Themes in Mentor Check-Ins
Developing Deep Relationships
Mentors get to know their students by talking about a student's strengths, growth areas, goals, and aspirations in a supportive and accepting way.
Mentors hold students accountable to set and achieve goals by checking in and supporting students through the Self-Directed Learning Cycle.
Building Connections with Teachers
Mentors connect with a student's other teachers to ensure everyone is aligned on the student's progress toward their goals.
Working with Families
Mentors develop a deep connection with both their students and their students' families. This makes it easy to make sure everyone knows about a student's progress and overall school experience.
