The role of student mentors in teacher program induction. Curriculum and Teaching Dialogue

22(1&2), 233-249.

Abstract

Secondary students who were experienced peer instructors in a research- based secondary STEM program mentored teachers as they mastered a new instructional model. Qualitative methods were used to explore affective responses and behavioral changes attributed to student mentoring. Findings suggested that students played a vital role in teacher professional development, sharing expertise in critical areas including setting appropriate expectations and individual learning needs. This study lays the foundation for research exploring mentoring from a 360 perspective.
