Chalk Talk: The Importance of Mentorship Programs
Making the change from eighth grade to ninth grade might not seem like that big of a shift, but according to research, it is the most difficult change to make for K-12 students. The pressures of high school can get to kids who are slow to respond to the increased academic work load and changes in the social scene. As such, many schools are implementing mentoring programs to help freshmen adjust to the faster pace of high school life. These programs, which pair freshmen with junior and senior students, focus on helping kids acquire the academic, social and emotional skills they need to make high school a success. Students might work together on a team building exercise, learn how to effectively communicate with others or learn strategies to study for exams. Whatever the activity, the presence of a mentor to help them through their first year of high school has been shown to be highly effective in helping freshmen transition into high school.
