Ensure a rewarding and productive mentoring experience!

High-performance mentors are not born. Even experienced educators need training in order to provide constructive support to entry-year teachers. James B. Rowley′s mentoring framework has been used to successfully train thousands of teachers to acquire the six essential behaviors of high-performance mentoring: committing, accepting, communicating, coaching, learning, and inspiring.

With more than twenty years of experience in training mentor teachers, Rowley blends real-life stories with established research to help readers:

  • Understand mentoring as a performance continuum with escalating developmental stages
  • Improve assessment, communication, and coaching skills
  • Reflect on the mentoring process and analyze mentoring relationships
  • Utilize mentoring as a pathway to personal and professional growth

Designed for experienced and novice mentor teachers, this book will also be an enormously useful resource for mentor program coordinators, trainers, staff developers, and principals who want to assure that participants grow in their teaching practice as a result of the mentoring experience.
