With our model, two learning partners, the mentor and the new teacher, work through collaborative inquiry processes to enhance teaching practices. Our model includes an innovative module of "facilitated instruction," to provide embedded practice of the instructional strategy. With the research-based instructional strategies as their guides (elements), through reflective practice, goals will be established and work on side by side, to improve student learning. Self-assessment measures are built into the model through rubrics.
