He, Ye
Mentoring & Tutoring: Partnership in Learning, v17 n3 p263-275 Aug 2009
In order to better prepare pre-service teachers for potential challenges in their first year of teaching, it is critical for both teacher educators and supervising teachers to provide strategies to strengthen pre-service teachers' beliefs and maintain their motivation.

A strength-based mentoring model in teacher education is presented, and measures and strategies developed from different strength-based theories are applied to the six elements of this model.
