Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Three educators from Alberta, Canada explore the use of mentorship, peer support, and student leadership programs in the K-12 school setting. Several case studies demonstrate successful school-based programs using adults as volunteer mentors. Coverage includes the histories, organizational structures and benefits of these programs; guidelines for starting literacy mentorship programs in elementary schools; the mentor's pedagogy; and the mentor's development of relationships with children. The operation and benefits of five peer support programs are examined. A discussion of two programs in rural early childhood services schools explores the use of student leadership programs, including an analysis of students' perceptions of the programs, and the significance and benefits of the two programs. No subject index. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
