Senior Project: Mentoring--The Art of Becoming. [Videotape].
Southeastern Regional Vision for Education (SERVE), Tallahassee, FL.
Mentoring is an integral part of SERVE's Senior Project program. Mentors provide support and guidance to students as they complete the requirements of Senior Project by meeting with them to offer input on their research papers and assistance with the design and implementation of their projects. Approximately 100 schools in SERVE's 6-state region have implemented Senior Project. This 15-minute VHS videotape was developed in response to requests from Senior Project coordinators who needed training materials for their prospective mentors to explain the mentor's role, provide guidelines for what is expected of a Senior Project mentor, define the goals of mentoring, and establish mentoring dos and don'ts. Coordinators also wanted something that would give students an idea of what they should expect from a mentor. The video draws from the experiences of established Senior Project programs and the latest in the field of mentoring research. (SM)
