During the school year, teacher-mentor and students organize one-on-one meetings where they learn how to set their goals, monitor their actions, reflect on their decisions and self-evaluate their goals. In the mentorship program, the teacher - mentor supports and guides learners so as to manage and achieve their goals.
It is noted that the Mentoring program is an SRL good practice. In Doukas School (elementary, junior High School & Lyceum) pupils engage in a set of activities and attempt to learn how to self-regulate their academic path.
Doukas School’s Psychologists organize the Mentoring Project and guide teacher-mentors. Each Teacher-mentor provides personalized support and guidance to assigned students-mentees. Students use a notebook, where they write and monitor their goals. The process of the mentoring program has steps (set goals, strategic planning, manage time, monitor progress, self-evaluate actions) and specific objectives. At the end of the year, Students and Parents evaluate the mentoring program. Also, School's Psychologists collect SRL data and monitor students' development.
Teacher-mentors invite students to participate in the process and keep a learning diary/notebook. Students use the paper or electronic forms (notebook) for scheduling and keeping notes. Throughout the year, students fill in their notebook. Students use their notebook so as to evaluate their actions and their goals and set new goals. Also, mentors keep their own notes about the process and their students’ goals and actions. School’s Psychologists check teachers’ notes during Christmas and Easter holidays.
