How to Mentor in the Midst of Change by Cheryl Granade Sullivan
Whether in the context of a formal district-mandated program or in a grassroots effort, mentoring depends on the development of trust, respect and communication between mentor and prot�g�. To be a mentor means to have a vision and enable others to participate in the vision and to go on to be mentors themselves.
In this updated second edition, author Sullivan expands on contemporary mentoring--its roles as wise counselor, in teacher induction, for administrative advancement--and its new approaches evolving in the mastery of a field requiring hard work and talent.
Mentors and prot�g�s, wannabes and maybes--all can benefit from Sullivan's direct, on-the-mark delineation of the guidelines and ideas for adults in mentoring roles in this 21st century.
