Material for Learning Mentors

Price: £25.00
Age Range: KS3

Peer mentoring is one of those excellent principles that has been ignored for too long. At long last, according to the Guardian (and this DCSF information sheet), the Government has got behind it. OFSTED is sure to follow.

My first mentee was very shy and that was the biggest part of the problem – she was so shy she used to ignore the bully, so things just got worse. I found some worksheets on confidence-building, how to find your voice and stand up for yourself. We worked on them together through posters and pictures, and gradually the problem stopped.

Raising self-esteem, promoting aspirations and improving achievement are key objectives of these worksheets and lesson plans which are designed for learning mentors and their KS3 students. Learning mentor resources are designed for students at Key Stage 3, but may also be useful for other groups, such as underachieving gifted students.

Learning mentor worksheet topics include: What is a learning mentor?; Attendance; Education: Why bother?; Targets and achievements; Coping strategies; Goal setting; SATS; Homework; Self-esteem; Hopes, dreams and ambitions; Plans for the future.
