The P-16 Strategic Collaboration Model: A Team Mentoring Approach
Wasburn, Mara H.; Wasburn-Moses, Leah; Blackman, Jay
Educational Forum, v72 n1 p32-44 2008
Teacher attrition is an enduring national issue. To help address this problem, formal mentoring programs for new teachers have been implemented by most states. Mentoring, however, is rarely used beyond the induction years. This article presents an adaptation of a business model, the Strategic Collaboration Model[TM], which approaches mentoring as a network activity. This collaborative, peer-oriented strategy was used successfully with female university professors in a pilot program. Applications for teachers across the P-16 spectrum are discussed.
