Filled with reproducible resources and real-life vignettes, this unique book focuses on coaching new teachers in culturally and linguistically diverse school settings, but can be used in any setting.

"These two remarkable educators not only document the development of their own relationship from mentor/mentee to professional colleagues, they also draw from their own experiences, research studies, and the real voices of countless new teachers to provide an excellent, hands-on guide for perfecting the mentoring role in multicultural settings. Kudos!"
—Lisa Delpit, Eminent Scholar, Executive Director

Help new teachers thrive in culturally and linguistically diverse school settings!

The challenges of teaching in a culturally and linguistically diverse (CLD) school, including language barriers, special needs, and teacher isolation, can be especially overwhelming for early-career teachers. This unique book on mentoring and coaching new teachers is specifically designed for multicultural school settings, although educators in all settings can benefit.

The authors draw from their own experience implementing a highly successful mentoring program for new teachers in a large, urban school district. The book offers practical examples anchored in the current theoretical and research base for the professional development of novice teachers in urban as well as non-urban areas. Filled with vignettes that directly capture the real-life experiences of new teachers and their mentors, this volume:

  • Illustrates how to develop effective teacher-to-teacher mentoring relationships

  • Raises readers′ awareness of issues that might arise from CLD differences and facilitates more effective communication

  • Offers reproducible resources, agendas, and other sample materials for a variety of contexts

This timely and practical book helps mentors give new teachers the support they need to survive and succeed in diverse school settings.
