Mentoring Student Teachers and Interns: Strategies for Engaging, Relating, Supporting, and Challenging Future Educators is an interactive how-to guide for teacher preparation professionals who are charged with the supervision and mentoring of student teachers and interns. Written for both seasoned teacher educators and those new to teacher education, the book provides research-based, best practices for clinical supervision. The authors identify key concepts and strategies for creating/sustaining productive partnerships, relationship-building, program assessment/accountability, planning and sequencing, and supervision. Of special importance are the "help" sections; helping interns in diverse settings, helping the struggling intern, and supporting/challenging the excellent intern. The book concludes with two often-overlooked topics; the administrator's role and training new mentors and university supervisors. The interactive format of the book permits readers to explore Web-based ancillary materials and videos and immediately apply what they have learned. Mentoring Student Teachers and Interns: Strategies for Engaging, Relating, Supporting, and Challenging Future Educators is a must-have guide for clinical supervisors, both new and old. -- Marcus D. Childress, Dean and Professor, School of Education, Baker University
