Every member of a learning community has something that they can mentor others in. The mentoring might be connected to a skill such as skipping, developing a good search phrase for research or staying calm in the face of difficulties. Learners might have different abilities such as being a “quiet” learner, feeling comfortable working in teams, great at organizing time or materials, or developing innovative ideas.

Some of these skills, abilities, dispositions or perspectives will be seen as constructive and useful in different leaning spaces, some will fall into the shadow of not being a popular or pleasing construct, depending on the powerful voices and meaning-makers in any given group.

It is important that all members of a learning community have space and are valued for the ideas, skills, understandings, etc. that they feel they can share with others in the role of mentor.

What the mentors have to offer will depend on their age, identity claims and previous experiences.  By providing a space and voice for peer mentoring, teachers are setting up the scaffold needed to support action-based agency.

Use the resources in this product to set up an “Active Agents- Peer Mentoring’  board. Or just use the  ideas and let the students create their own board. Alternatively share the idea behind the board  with the members of the leaning class and leave it open to how they create a peer mentoring system.
