Student Teachers’ Team Teaching during Field Experiences: An Evaluation by their Mentors
This study investigates the attitude of mentors toward student teachers’ team teaching in general and toward parallel and sequential teaching in particular. Furthermore, the authors also examine the advantages and disadvantages the mentors see for the actors involved (mentors, student teachers, and learners) and the conditions they consider necessary for successful implementation. The findings indicate that mentors demonstrated an openness toward the use of team teaching during field experiences. The mentors identified both advantages and disadvantages for mentors and student teachers.

The authors describe how the use of creative technology at Northeastern University in Boston, Massachusetts addressed these two issues.

Prospective and Mentor Teacher Perspectives on Co-learning Events
This study aimed to examine practicing mentor teachers (MTs) and prospective teachers' (PSTs) perspectives on their experiences in co-learning events. The findings reveal there is evidence of a personal orientation toward mentoring interactions among both PSTs and MTs. MTs noted that the co-learning events helped them connect with and build relationships with PSTs, in particular the sessions when MTs joined the PSTs in their methods courses. MTs saw these personal connections to PSTs as supporting their ability to serve as mentors. However, the authors also found that some PSTs resisted the positioning of MTs as learners during particular co-learning events. PSTs said that they considered the methods course as a learning space for them. Hence, when MTs joined the class, they expected them to instruct the class in particular content.

Why Mentor? Linking Mentor Teachers’ Motivations to their Mentoring Conceptions
The purpose of this study was to explore the relationship between mentors’ mentoring conceptions and their mentoring motives. The findings showed that a motivation to mentor for personal learning was more strongly associated with a developmental conception of mentored learning to teach than with an instrumental mentoring conception. The same was found for a motivation to mentor for contributing to the profession, but less pronounced.

What Do Student Teachers Want in Mentor Teachers?: Desired, Expected, Possible, and Emerging Roles
This study aimed to add to the discourse about possible roles for mentor teachers and how to best support student teachers and mentors in negotiating these roles. The findings indicated that student teachers have clear ideas about what they desire in a mentor teacher. The authors found that some participants preferred emotional support and others wanted instructional support. However, none of the participants wanted socialization. In addition, the authors identified a new interpretation of the mentor teacher role (mentor as gatekeeper) that might be viewed negatively about the function of student teaching for some student teachers.

Planning for What Kind of Teaching? Supporting Cooperating Teachers as Teachers of Planning
This article examined how mentor teachers help interns in learning to plan lessons.The author revealed that some of the interns attempted to teach meaningful content but failed to consider ahead of time the nitty-gritty details or they attempted to teach a lesson that lacked a clear, worthwhile purpose. She understood that the interns often taught from plans that their collaborating teacher had read through and approved of Hence, she wanted to help the collaborating teachers consider playing a larger role in helping interns strengthen individual lesson plans before interns actually taught from those plans. The author concludes that becoming a teacher of planning requires mentors to possess conceptual and practical knowledge of instructional planning, how novices learn to plan, and how to teach planning.
