Teaching Practice

This is a two year programme:

Single cell classrooms:
During this year the Mentor Teacher and the Manaiakalani Beginning Teacher (MBT) will share the class (primary) or classes (college).
Responsibility for planning and teaching will transition during the year.
In Term One it will primarily be with the mentor teacher as the MBT will be focussing on digital immersion.
By Term Four the locus of responsibility will have shifted to the MBT.
Modern Learning Environments:
Where there are several teachers in one hub/space the transition will still occur, but in a negotiated way with the team teachers.

The MBT will carry out the full responsibilities of a beginning teacher in their second year.
