Issues in Mentoring Programs for Teachers.
Bainer, Deborah L.
Mid-Western Educational Researcher, v12 n4 p3-6 Fall 1999
Discusses three aspects of mentoring practices revealed by research on how teachers work together in naturalistic elementary school settings: (1) mentoring is just one of several types of supportive behaviors needed and practiced by teachers; (2) support networks differ between male and female teachers; and (3) informal mentoring occurs in schools whether or not formalized programs exist.
