Mentoring opportunity for parents

## Mentoring opportunity for parents

Dear Parent,

This post comes to you as an opportunity to mentor your child during the PYP Exhibition process. It is going to be an exciting process where you will play an important role in:

• guiding the students to a collaborative, in-depth inquiry
• guiding students to synthesize and apply their learning of previous years
• assessing the student(s)
• helping students access resources – people, places, media and information
• in giving them feedback on the exhibition
• celebrating the transition of learners from primary to middle/secondary education

Role of a mentor:

Some examples of mentor participation include:

• Identify areas where you as mentor could support thre students.
• Each group will be assigned atleast a mentor and groups will meet their mentors on a weekly/biweekly baisis or as needed. For instance, in the early stages of the inquiry, mentors come in 2 – 3 times a week to guide research work and can reduce their involvement to once or twice a week to increase student responsibility
• Mentors will guide the students and help them monitor their progress, but ultimately the students are responsible for the completion of work
• The mentors primary role is to act as a guide and resource in the accomplishment of a specific task during the exhibition process. Mentors have a purely advisory role.
• Mentors contribute to the formative assessment and the reflection on the exhibition process

As discussed during the parent orientation meeting, please fill up this form to express you interest to mentor.
