Ron Nash's The Active Mentor: Practical Strategies for Supporting New Teachers builds on his previous two books, The Active Classroom: Practical Strategies for Involving Students in the Learning Process and The Active Teacher: Practical Strategies for Maximizing Teacher Effectiveness. This latest resource demonstrates how county, school, and teacher leaders can build effective, active teacher mentoring programmes for new teachers. As an internationally known teaching coach, Nash builds on his teacher training expertise to show how teacher mentoring-when done well-holds promise for fostering teacher retention and increasing the effectiveness and satisfaction of new teachers. This book goes beyond topics commonly found in coaching and mentoring books to stress the importance of training new teachers to employ the active classroom principles that ensure student engagement and achievement.
