Seniors and Freshmen form mentoring groups to increase meaningful interaction between upper and lower grade level students that might not otherwise occur!
Vertical Teams: Seniors and Freshmen Partner Together for Mentoring!
Seniors in my classes were paired with freshmen in Ms. Alburger's classes in order to foster meaningful interaction throughout the school year.
We began our interactions by preparing for the district's mandated benchmark exam on September 4th and 5th. Two seniors and two freshmen met together to discuss the topic and prepare their initial brainstorming for the written component on day 2 of the 2 day exam. Many more such sessions will take place throughout the year!
