A Collaborative Mentor-Mentee Program.
Warring, Douglas F.
A mentor-mentee program has been developed and is currently being implemented and evaluated through the collaborative efforts of the College of St. Thomas (St. Paul, Minnesota) and the Bloomington (Minnesota) School District. The program provides for specific training, support, and frequent formal and informal contacts which stimulate professional growth. The Bloomington program, one of 11 sites funded in 1988 by the Minnesota State Department of Education, serves as a demonstration site. A description of the mentor-mentee program in Bloomington includes recommendations for developing successful mentorship programs. Tables provide findings on teachers' perceptions of their professional characteristics and the most frequently perceived problems of beginning teachers. (JD)
