Becoming a High-Performance Mentor (Multimedia Kit)
A Multimedia Kit for Professional Development



November 2008 | 64 pages | Corwin

Strengthen every mentor's capacity to provide constructive, meaningful support to entry-level teachers!

Designed around James B. Rowley's highly successful guide Becoming a High-Performance Mentor, this comprehensive multimedia presentation offers staff developers the materials they need to help experienced and novice mentor-teachers acquire the six essential behaviors of high-performance mentors: committing, accepting, communicating, coaching, learning, and inspiring. Workshop facilitators will be able to introduce the author's high-performance mentoring framework and engage participants in discussions about:

  • The four stages of the mentoring relationship
  • Understanding beginning teachers and related learning levels
  • Methods to increase mentor/mentee commitment
  • The influence of beliefs on the mentoring process
  • Mentoring as a path to professional growth

The multimedia kit for Becoming a High-Performance Mentor provides a mentor-teacher beliefs inventory and mentoring scenarios and includes:

  • The companion book, Becoming a High-Performance Mentor, which details the author's proven approach for developing outstanding mentor-teachers
  • A 47-minute, content-rich VHS video that features James B. Rowley discussing the essentials of high-performance mentoring and shows mentors demonstrating practical mentoring strategies
  • A companion DVD with navigation menu for easy stop-and-search control of the video content
  • A step-by-step facilitator's guide that connects the core content of the book to the video/DVD and includes segment prompts, workshop outlines, extended workshop activities, key points, and discussion questions

This all-in-one package is indispensable for mentor program coordinators, trainers, staff developers, and principals who want to broaden and strengthen the knowledge, skills, and values of their mentor-teachers.
