eMSS: An Online, Content-Focused Mentoring Program for Secondary Math and Science Teachers

Description

"The research literature is very clear on the type of experiences beginning teachers need in order to accelerate their growth and practice. eMSS, through its design, program implemention, and selection of mentors and facilitators builds a foundation of experiences for the beginning teacher that is guided by this research. The online community offers multiple venues for collaboration for the beginning teacher: with a mentor, with a small, self-selected group discussing a dilemma of practice, with content-focused small groups, and with content specialists. The different venues for collaboration allow many opportunities for networking and support. This sustained and intensive online community of practice provides the beginning math and science teacher with the necessary experiences to improve teacher practice and student achievement."
