Summary

This case study examined the implementation of the California Mentor Teacher Program (CMTP) in a large urban school district. The CMTP is an effort to retain skillful teachers and to improve teaching by promoting direct, rigorous, and consequential activities and relationships between mentors and beginning teachers. The participants in the study were a district official, the mentor coordinator, the president of the teachers' association, 22 mentors, 22 principals from the mentors' schools, and 22 teachers. Following a description of the school district and how the district adopted the mentor program, interviews with mentors and teachers are presented. The interviews included discussions of the relationships between mentors and their mentees, the perceived attitudes of the participants and other school personnel toward the mentorship program, and the activities of the program participants. The impact of the program on the school district is discussed and some recommendations are made for improving the program's effectiveness. (JD)
