Now Online: Mentoring Beginning Teachers, Second Edition

January 12th, 2009

Mentoring Beginning Teachers
How can you take on the role of mentor and foster a positive and fulfilling experience for you and your new colleague? What are the important factors that influence the success of a mentoring relationship? How can you help the beginning teacher tackle specific classroom challenges?

Building on the success of the first edition — used in teacher induction programs across the country — the revised and expanded Mentoring Beginning Teachers is a practical guide for K-12 mentors that answers key questions about:
• preparing to be a mentoring guide and coach;
• encouraging reflection;
• helping beginning teachers with specific challenges such as classroom management and teaching English language learners;
• school-wide strategies for ensuring the success of mentoring and beginning teachers;
• how to deal with common mentoring tensions and dilemmas.
The new edition incorporates team mentoring strategies and features new chapters on helping beginning teachers negotiate the school culture, collaborate with parents, prepare for curriculum mapping, and work with administrators. And it’s filled with examples of mentoring situations and dialogue that illustrate key concepts.

Available later this month, you can preview the entire text online now.
