Editorial Reviews

Review

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 District

The 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

I have purchased four of Paula s books. They are excellent tools. I used Leading the Learning and The 21st Century Mentor s Handbook as a mentor teacher. Several of the strategies and activities from Why Didn t I Learn This in College? I have used with new teachers and Instruction for All Students was taken from me by a teacher the moment she flipped through the pages. The material is easy to read, nicely organized and easy to understand. It is clear and every strategy and piece of advice is useful. They are the greatest resources one can use. --Gina E. E. Davis, Cedar Bridge Academy, Bermuda

By Kathleen A. Felt on January 3, 2007
Format: Paperback
I have 2 teachers that I mentor right now. This book really helped me put the details in perspective. The calendar ideas are very beneficial. This is a "go-to" book.

Format: Paperback
Paula Rutherford created the best mentor source book on the market when she wrote 21st Century Mentor's Handbook. The comprehensive calendar allows support personnel a variety of options listed by the month. Most mentor resources describe the life cycle of a new teacher and suggest that mentors offer support in these areas. Rutherford gives the reader ready to apply tools for developing a first year teacher's skills. This book is not the typical recommendations for professional, emotional, and personal support. Rutherford breaks the support down into the following categories: personal; professional; curriculum, instruction, and assessment; organizational systems; students; colleagues; school and school system; parents and community; and special educators. This book is a comprehensive resource for anyone working with inexperienced educators.
