EDU 640 - VHS Teacher Induction Program

2 Credits

This course is the second phase of the VHS teacher onboarding program, where the teacher works with a mentor that guides and assesses their progress. Participants will communicate weekly with their faculty advisors through email, phone calls, and virtual discussions, reflecting on their progress in meeting teacher responsibilities. Structured assignments and reflections will be evaluated by the mentor, who will provide feedback and guidance as needed. Topics to be covered include: setting the tone in communication with students and stakeholders, creating an online community, facilitating discussions, applying IEP and 504 accommodations, providing substantive feedback, addressing plagiarism and academic dishonesty, supporting students with extenuating circumstances, using digital tools to promote engagement, and keeping records of student learning in the online classroom.
