Teacher Education and Mentoring Program: Program Design and Research Results.
Bey, Theresa M.; Hightower, Anne
The Teacher Education and Mentoring Program (TEAM) allows intern teachers who have not completed the required teacher education courses prior to employment as regular classroom teachers to have the support of master teachers, or mentors, while teaching with provisional certification. The internship is a closely supervised practicum with each intern assigned an advisor (mentor) and a support team. The training program enables professionals in the fields of mathematics, science, and foreign language to enter the classroom under the supervision of a well-trained mentor. This report is organized into four parts, along with five appendixes containing information and forms applicable to the program. Part 1 provides a brief overview of the program and information on its purpose and objectives. Part 2 focuses on the program design and implementation and includes information about the initial proposal, format of the advisory committee, and the process used for identifying and training mentors. Part 3, Research Design and Analysis, contains findings from the intern and mentor survey instruments and interviews. Part 4 presents conclusions and offers a set of recommendations for the future. A summary report is included which presents brief segments of information from the final report. (JD)
