Mentoring mathematics teachers in low socio-economic secondary schools in New Zealand. (English)
N. Z. Math. Mag. 42, No. 2, 1-12 (2005).
This paper reports on mentoring relationships that developed as a professional development strategy for mathematics teachers in secondary schools in low socio-economic areas. It follows from an earlier paper (Kensington-Miller, 2004) in which four different professional development strategies, one of which was mentoring, were evaluated for their effectiveness in understanding mathematics teacher development in low socio-economic schools. The paper then theorises the effectiveness and the difficulties that occur within different mentoring relationships. The relationships are described using a continuum model ranging from judgmental to developmental. (orig.)
