Teachers Assisting Teachers. T.A.T. Program. Mentoring for Part-Time Instructors.
Lake County Coll., Grayslake, IL.
This guide resulted from the Teachers Assisting Teachers (T.A.T.) Program, which was established to address specific staff development issues that were created by the implementation of the National Workplace Literacy Program. The TAT program pairs workplace literacy teachers as mentors to help both teachers improve their teaching skills. Two projects are suggested for mentoring: (1) the Bow Tie project allows two teachers to share the responsibilities of teaching a class, with the teachers exchanging responsibilities and roles at the midpoint of the course; and (2) the Wagon Wheel project allows one teacher to observe the other participating teacher, offer feedback, and guide discussion. Project materials include the following: lists of teacher responsibilities, schedules, requirements, a professional survey, tips and questions for successful sharing partnerships, a partnership agreement, a guide for a midpoint meeting for the teachers, a guide for a final meeting, and a program evaluation form.
