Description [Washington, D.C.] : Distributed by ERIC Clearinghouse, 1987 
29 p. 

For the past three years, case studies have been conducted of a school district's implementation of the California Mentor Teacher Program. For two of the case studies, interview data of mentors and their mentees were distilled into vignettes about how mentors and teachers worked together. At the end of this project, researchers used several research-based vignettes of teachers' interactions with mentor teachers during inservice activities with local mentor teachers, staff developers, and district administrators. The vignettes served as a catalyst to stimulate discussion about issues concerning the new role of mentor teachers. These vignettes were then incorportated into a casebook that integrated research knowledge with practitioner knowledge. These casebooks are part of a larger effort to build and use practitioner knowledge in teaching and teacher education. This report begins with a description of the background of the project and a site description of the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUDS) where the data were collected. This is followed by an account of the evolution of the cases and the casebook. The last section discusses how the casebook can be used in teacher training, and in particular, how one school district (LAUSD) is using the casebook for mentor training. (JD)
