Review the mentor/mentee agreement(s) and paperwork by clicking the option on your blue list of course options on the ID 251 home page. It is titled: ID 253 Mentor Informatiom. Research and determine who might be a good mentor choice(s) for this culminating experience in the CCFP program. Discuss your choice(s) with your instructor using Saclink email through our course site and on weekly discussion. A list of ideas and tips will be provided on our ID 251 website to help guide your initial contact. This interview should not only provide you with important and helpful insight about teaching and getting work in your field/content area, but also help highlight for your mentor candidate the benefits of their agreement (yes they will help you out but they also will gain a gifted guest speaker and assistant in the classroom along with upper level unit(s) that may increase their pay level!). I will happily discuss other tips and suggestions. Once prepared, your interview should go something like this: Research contacts, send out an initial email inquiry to ask the candidate(s) for a 15 minute one-on-one interview and get a good date and time to re-connect by phone or in person, talk or meet if they agree. Compose at least one curriculum-based question and one assessment based question for your interview. Suggestion: Compose and ask between 6 and 8 questions in total. Be brief and direct. These questions should be open ended and structured to explore the potential mentor’s teaching philosophy and scholarly priorities to see if you are compatible and how you might be different too. Contact and interact with this community college instructor and conduct the informational interview(s) face-to-face if at all possible. Potential mentors are much more likely to accept mentees when these meetings take place face-to-face. You may also attempt this interview by phone, Skype, FaceTime, email or in person. During the weekly discussion, post and share, summarize and evaluate your interview using Richlin’s Blueprint as a guide. Read other interviews from our cohort to compare experiences and drop a copy in the assignment tab for grading and feedback. Offer input and ask questions about each other’s experiences and challenges. Transcribe OR summarize your interview, including your questions.
