How can teachers learn from each other, build relationships, and develop the knowledge and skills they need for more successful classrooms?
A new book co-authored by education professor Lana Parker offers strategies that are practical and easy to implement.
Mentoring Each Other explores ways teachers can collaborate and learn from each other in formal and informal situations. In it, Dr. Parker and Diane Vetter of the York University Faculty of Education demonstrate that a mentoring relationship can benefit both new and experienced teachers.
The book features personal histories and experiences around values, advocates for honest reflection and meaningful feedback, and champions reciprocal and ongoing processes of learning, listening, and sharing.
