In-Class Follow-Up Mentor Residencies December 2011 – May 2012


After the professional development workshops, CAT provided 10 5-day mentor- model residencies to 7 different sites, supporting early childhood educators in successfully integrating strategies from the professional development workshops into their classrooms. These residencies combined programming developed and led by CAT and one-on-one professional development/mentoring for each participating teacher.


As in the past, schools were asked to pay for half the cost of the residency ($2,500), with DOE and other funds covering the remaining costs. It is a measure of the success and positive impact of this collaboration that, in these challenging economic times, principals and site directors were willing to commit funds to this project.


During and following the lessons, under CAT guidance, the classroom teachers:


 observed, reflected on, and reviewed the lessons led by the CAT actor/teachers;


 rehearsed the interactive storytelling lesson plan they had created in the professional development workshop, incorporating lessons learned from observing the CAT professionals in their classroom;


 implemented their lesson plan;  assessed the successes and challenges of their lesson plans; and  discussed future use of CAT techniques in their classroom.
