University of Texas, El Paso

Teachers Mentoring Teachers is a guide for mentors, protégés, and schools. John C Daresh presents the role of a mentor not just as a SAGE guiding a novice, but as a responsive equal willing to listen and learn. He maintains this tone throughout the book, creating a foundation for reflection and critical analysis of the effectiveness of mentors and mentoring programmes. Chapters provide readers with an overview of the issues surrounding mentoring programmes, discussing various programmes, their benefits and their drawbacks. The book explores some of the major issues with planning, implementing, and evaluating mentoring programmes, and offers practical advice for professional development.
