Coaching v mentoring: what works best for teachers?

Coaching v mentoring: what works best for teachers? | Education | Scoop.it
Teacher Andrew Jones explains the difference between coaching and mentoring, and how they suit different professional development needs

 

Coaching, on the other hand, consists of peer-to-peer discussions that provide the person being coached with objective feedback on their strengths and weaknesses in areas chosen by them. While discussion is led by the coach, they ask questions that allow the professional seeking advice to reflect on their practice and set their own goals for improvement. This is the opposite of mentoring as the coach does not evaluate, judge or set targets, and the person being coached is in full control of the discussion.


Unlike mentoring, coaching also gives the recipient more say on the direction of their professional development and encourages them to take more ownership of their CPD.

The Big History Project is a free, online social studies course for secondary students. The website states that it is:

* 100% open, online curriculum and content; easy to download, print, share

* Ready-made lesson plans, inline teaching guidance and support

* Custom designed content including videos, texts, comics, and animations

* Easily tailored specific state standards and instructional approaches

* Aligned to Common Core ELA standards for 9/10th grade

The course is split into two time periods:

* Section 1: Formations and early life: Theories and evidence of origins of the Universe, planet formation, elements, and life.

* Section 2: Humans: The development of humans, civilizations, and key milestones in our progress.

To access materials you will need to register for the site. If you want some previews of the site you will find a video that discusses how the first part of the course was designed, a video that provides an overview of the 8 major thresholds in the Big History Project, a sample main talk from one unit, a PowerPoint presentation to show to your school or parents, and a Teaching Guide (which you can download at https://course.bighistoryproject.com/media/homepagemedia/CourseGuide.pdf).
