While mentoring addresses the instructional support resident educators need as they begin their professional teaching careers, focused mentoring is specific and targeted to address teacher competencies Ohio once measured in the Resident Educator Summative Assessment (RESA) in the years preceding 2017-2018. Through focused mentoring, teachers demonstrate their competency in the targeted skill areas at the local level instead of the state level.
Focused mentoring is typically delivered in two parts. During Year 1, Focused Mentoring targets professional growth, communication and collaboration. During Year 2, Focused Mentoring targets use of student formative and summative assessment.
