Supervising student teachers effectively assures that vital professional experience will be of maximum benefit to the pre-service teacher. Mentor teachers and university faculty who work with student teachers need specific training to make the experience rewarding, while the student teacher requires specific information for professional success. The primary focus of this text is based on conferences, strategies, and specific techniques that mentors can use while working with pre-service interns. Several appendices provide resources for mentors to use with the student teachers they work with and bibliographic resources are included with each chapter for additional reference. Written for mentor teachers, principals, university faculty, and anyone working with student teachers.
