The Mentor-Intern Relationship: A Report to the State Education Department on the New York State Mentor Teacher-Internship Program for 1987-1988.
Mager, Gerald M.; Corwin, Carol
The central feature of the New York State Mentor Teacher-Internship Program is the establishment of a relationship between an experienced, highly regarded teacher and one who is just beginning the work of teaching or is beginning to teach in a different area of certification. Building on the results of the first year's statewide evaluation, the second year evaluation design was set to pursue many of the same questions that guided the collection of data in the first year, particularly those which bore directly or indirectly on the mentor-intern relationship. Six survey instruments were developed. Interns and mentors were the chief sources of information; local project coordinators were also surveyed for perspective. Interviews at selected sites provided further insight. The first section of the report reviews the backgrounds of the teacher participants. The second section reviews several matters regarding the matches made between interns and mentors. In the third section, descriptions are presented of how the relationships were begun, followed by a section on the problems encountered in the projects. The fifth section reviews experiences in the relationships generally, and expectations regarding the continuation of the relationships in the coming year. (JD)
