Finding One's Way: How Mentoring Can Lead to Dynamic Leadership.
Crow, Gary M.; Matthews, L. Joseph
Since new role changes resulting from school reform agendas can place a school administrator at any career stage in uncharted territory, a career-long mentoring approach is recommended. The first chapters of this book introduce the concept of mentoring and the socialization framework consisting of characteristics, stages, methods, and goals. Subsequent chapters discuss mentoring and socialization of administrative interns, assistant principals, new principals and mid-career administrators. The final chapter discusses the organizational planning, selection, training, matching, and evaluation aspects of implementing mentor programs. (Contains 175 references.) (LH)
