The Peer Helping Annotated and Indexed Bibliography

Peer Mentor Relationships

This section of the Bibliography represents what might be considered a variation on the theme of peer helping. In most cases mentoring involves an on-going, one-to-one relationship. Mentors have been used primarily for career development, especially amongst women, minorities and with gifted students. In school-based mentoring programs, mentors are often drawn from the community. Mentors contribute to research skills, creative problem-solving, and self-directed learning. Peers can also be effective models as well as mentors, and in some ways the influence processes are identical. An additional work, the Annotated Bibliography on Peer Teaching and Tutoring, is available through the Peer Resources (see address on inside cover of this Bibliography).
