In this session, participants view and have an in-depth discussion about a post-observation conference for a lesson from the ice cream-making unit in Cindy Wrobel’s class. They fill out a mentoring journal, and they evaluate the mentoring journal from the video conference. Participants discover the implications for making ice cream, identify the best container in which to make ice cream and why, as well as enjoy the fruits of their labors. They also examine components of communication and assess their own communication skills. The session ends with your introducing participants to the Mentor-Mentee Handbook and the Planning Guide which will guide their interactions.
