Intern Mentors: Is This an Idea Worth Pursuing?
Grippin, Pauline C.
This paper is a review of literature examining the definitions of cooperating teacher, college supervisor, master teacher, mentor, and recommended selection criteria in light of new teacher certification requirements in New York State for a full-year internship. Given the lack of clear role definitions, unintegrated research findings, and traditional patterns of student teacher-mentor relationships, the idea of teacher mentors for such interns does not seem to hold much promise. Forty-six references are listed. (Author)
