In their lectures and seminars, trainee teachers are crammed with theories, concepts and applications, but the make-or-break experience is in school, where trainees really discover how to teach and what their strengths and weaknesses are. A mentor is the critical friend who makes that journey with the trainee and who adjusts targets and expectations to suit the individual trainee. This book aims to help mentors support trainees more effectively. It also allows mentors to demonstrate and to develop further the skills and expertise they draw on to support trainees.
The scenarios are grouped into three sections, each progressively less 'scaffolded' so that more experienced mentors can work on them more autonomously.
This book is a course requirement for Level 2 Mentor Development seminars at the University of Hertfordshire School of Education both in the UK and in Malaysia.
