Exercise 6: Videos

GROW Model by Liz Scott

This YouTube video describes the GROW model of mentoring and coaching, which stands for goal, reality, options, and what next. After watching the video, you might write an entry in your journal exploring how you might use the grow model to achieve your goals in this virtual mentoring experience.

Mentoring — guiding, coaching and sustaining beginning teachers from Stenhouse Publishers

This video, available online through the University of Ottawa Library gives both examples of mentoring and principles of good mentoring relationships in the context of new teachers. If you don’t have time to watch the entire video, you might enjoy an example of mentoring (6:15-16:17) and then a discussion of good mentoring (22:00-25:15). How do you think these experiences and discussions might play out to help you meet your goals? Reflect on this in your journal.
