Columbus East High School - Senior Project
- Have expertise in the field with significant experience in the student's selected topic;
- Be over 21 years of age, not the student's peer;
- Boyfriends or girlfriends of students may not be their mentor -- no matter the age of the boyfriend or girlfriend, parents of a boyfriend or girlfriend should not mentor a student;
- Not a relative of the student;
- Be available for consultation with the student on a regular basis;
- Verify hours and student work completed on the project;
- Have a valid, working e-mail address and ability to communicate electronically.
- Act as a primary resource (be interviewed, provide information) for the student during the research paper phase;
- Suggest sources that the student can seek out for research;
- Share with the student any materials to which you have access that will help the students complete the paper or project;
- Meet with the student on a regular basis to check progress;
- Assist the student in establishing objectives and keeping a log of activities completed while meeting;
- Give the student practical experience in the area of the chosen topic;
- Listen to the student's practice speech and offer appropriate feedback;
- Encourage the student to perform at a maximum level.
Remember – a mentor is a guide.
It is not expected that you DO the project for the student, but GUIDE the student through the process.
