Hosting Mentors: Handbooks for Middle and High Schools
These handbooks are a result of collaboration between Project SOAR, Wildcat School, and the UA College of Education Outreach Office. This second version of the handbook refines the collection of ideas, recommendations and support documents collected with the efforts of UA undergraduate students at Wildcat School. As it is introduced at your school the outreach office would love to have feedback on how to improve on the product. Ultimately, the tool is meant to help schools be better prepared to host college volunteers as this becomes a growing trend in cities that house our great American universities. All advice is welcome and I am glad to incorporate ideas that will make this work better.
The College of Education encourages you to photocopy and use any materials included in the handbook, as often as you need. All that is requested in exchange is that the handbook be referenced and acknowledged when used.
Hosting Mentors Handbook: This handbook outlines the steps to take when your school agrees to host college student mentors working in a college preparatory setting at your school. These mentors are not in content area classrooms supporting content area learning. They work more in the guise of a big brother/sister at university and share what those experiences are and how to prepare for them while in secondary school.
Hosting Science Mentors Handbook: This handbook outlines the steps to take when your school agrees to host college student mentors working in a science classroom. These mentors support the content being taught but go a step further. They can lead groups activities but also design and execute their own science stations. This group works closely with the teacher and supports the science the teacher is teaching.
COMING SOON: Activities designed for the mentors and by the mentors that you can use in your classrooms.
