Professional development is an on going process. Willman et al (1986) suggested that three essential conditions for professional growth are: autonomy, collaboration, and time. In an attempt to promote professional growth, numerous professional development programs have been initiated. One program being considered is mentoring where a beginning teacher is paired with an experienced teacher. Research on mentoring programs stresses the importance of a well designed mentor training program. In this study, I have compiled numerous activities that can be used by mentors, interns and faculty members who are interested in learning more about mentoring. The study has been organized as a presenter's guide and includes six topics: mentoring principles, conferencing techniques, interpersonal skills, needs of beginning teachers, stages of adult development and evaluation. Each section has been developed to include: an introductory activity to set the context, background information, suggested activities and selected references.
