About the eBook

"This book is for any school developing its own mentoring program or looking to improve an existing one. The program shows everyone how to take responsibility for helping newly hired educators develop into practitioners who continuously reflect on and improve their teaching skills."
—Kathy Tritz-Rhodes, Principal

"Ron Nash weaves storytelling and realistic dialogue to set the stage for what mentors should model for new teachers to help them gain the confidence they need. This should be required reading for all administrators, mentors, coaches, teachers, and professional developers."
—From the Foreword by Kay Burke

Connect with new teachers and help them thrive in the active classroom!

Successful teacher mentoring holds the key to fostering teacher retention and increasing the effectiveness and satisfaction of new teachers. Building on his previous books The Active Teacher and The Active Classroom, Ron Nash demonstrates how educators can build effective, active mentoring programs for new teachers.

Packed with strategies, anecdotes, and reflection questions, this resource goes beyond topics commonly found in coaching and mentoring books to stress the importance of training new teachers to employ active classroom principles that ensure student engagement and achievement. The author:

  • Discusses the role of professional development in promoting teacher effectiveness
  • Emphasizes the importance of creating and maintaining a schoolwide climate conducive to mentoring
  • Illustrates the critical role of mentors in providing support to new teachers
  • Demonstrates how to build strong personal and professional relationships between mentors and protégés

Now mentors can actively influence the next generation of teachers by promoting best practices for engaged learning and a lively classroom environment!
