What a resource! The quality and practicality of this book resounds in James Bryce's quote: the worth of a book is to be measured by what you can carry away from it
. Not only are mentors using it, but administrators as well. I am continuously astounded by the variety of information that is housed in one resource. A MUST for any program supporting teachers in education. --Cynthia Bell, National Board Certified Teacher, Specialist for Human Resources, Moore County Schools, NC
After careful review of the myriad of resources we chose to adopt The 21st Century Mentor's Handbook
for our mentoring and induction program. If all districts across the country used Just ASK resources and embedded these principles into their district cultures, then "No Child Left Behind" would become a reality and not just a platitude for compliance. --Betsy Geery, Director of Professional Development, Ysleta Independent School DistrictThe 21st Century Mentor's Handbook
provides direction, guidance, and clearly outlines how to be an effective mentor. The author undoubtedly understands the challenges that new teachers face and has captured the spirit of mentoring and retaining teachers. We provide this book for all of our mentors, and Paula Rutherford's Why Didn't I Learn This in College?
for all of our new teachers. --Angela Belfield, Specialist, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools, TX
