Mentor Teacher Group Guide: Adult Multiple Intelligences
Hofer, Judy
National Center for the Study of Adult Learning and Literacy (NCSALL)
This Mentor Teacher Group Guide was created by the National Center for the Study of Adult Learning and Literacy (NCSALL) and the New Mexico Coalition for Literacy (NMCL) as part of the Connecting Practice, Policy, and Research Initiative (CPPR). It was piloted with five Mentor Teacher Groups throughout the state of New Mexico in the winter of 2002, and the suggested revisions were incorporated into this version. The Guide is part of a national effort to help connect research and practice in the field of adult basic education and adult literacy. It provides detailed instructions for organizing a mentor teacher group to consider the implications of Multiple Intelligences Theory in instructional practice. A small group of practitioners meets with a mentor to learn about and discuss research on Adult Multiple Intelligences and to receive constructive feedback as the practitioners apply the research to practice. Practitioners meet four times as a group and participate in two individual classroom observations for a total of 20 hours of professional development. Four appendices are included: (1) Meeting One Handouts; (2) Handouts and Articles on Classroom Observation, Peer Coaching, and Mentoring; (3) Meeting Two Handouts; and (4) Meeting Three Handouts.
