Mentoring and Co-Mentoring: Vehicles To Teach Tolerance in the New Millennium?
Jackson, Valery L.
Mentoring and co-mentoring have gained a firm base in the educational jargon of the new millennium. Many teachers use these concepts each day with students, peer teachers, parents, and administrators. In fact, the term teacher, in some cases, is now becoming synonymous with the word mentor. Yet there remains a lack of clarity about the overall goal of mentoring. The author of this paper suggests that mentoring may be used as a tool for the educator to communicate the concepts of self-awareness and diversity for United States citizens. Through this awareness, tolerance for others who are different might be attained. (Contains 25 references.) (Author/GCP)
