Mentoring: Contemporary Principles and Issues.
Bey, Theresa M., Ed.; Holmes, C. Thomas, Ed.
In the spirit of educational reform efforts, an initiative exists to restructure the education of teachers through collaborative action, using mentoring to build alliances. This monograph, based on contemporary principles and issues of mentoring, presents ways to conceptualize the professional preparation and development of teachers. Following a foreword, introduction, and discussion of the Principles of Mentoring recommended and adopted by the Association of Teacher Educators (Commission on the Role and Preparation of Mentor Teachers), the volume is organized into nine chapters: (1) "The Reality of Mentoring: Complexity in Its Process and Function" (Fay A. Head, Alan J. Reiman, and, Lois Thies-Sprinthall); (2) "Psychological Support for Mentors and Beginning Teachers: A Critical Dimension" (Yvonne Gold); (3) "Mentoring: A Teacher Development Activity That Avoids Formal Evaluation of the Protege" (Judith C. Neal); (4) "Mentor-Management: Emphasizing the HUMAN in Managing Human Resources" (Richard S. Kay); (5) "Guidelines for Selecting Mentors and Creating an Environment for Mentoring" (Billie J. Enz); (6) "Collaboration and Mentoring" (Reiman, Head, and Thies-Sprinthall); (7) "Evaluating Mentoring Programs" (Sandra J. Odell); (8) "Designing Training and Selecting Incentives for Mentor Programs" (Delores M. Wolfe); and (9) "Mentoring in Teacher Education: Diversifying Support for Teachers" (Theresa M. Bey). (LL)
