9780983099611: The Student Whisperer

Perhaps silver bells and cockleshells worked for contrary Miss Mary, but master gardeners do not make their gardens grow. And yet it is clearly not by chance or accident that they succeed. They understand the principles that govern their success, and they know their role in the process. Whether explicitly or intuitively, they understand natural law and they orchestrate circumstances to cooperate with it for an optimal crop.
Like a master gardener, a great mentor, a Student Whisperer, knows how to set the stage for transformational experiences as often as they are needed. She knows how to create the environment where such feelings and experiences are frequent, how to use such experiences to help us discover and improve ourselves, and even how to repeat and reinforce such feelings so that our motivation and efforts are sustained. A great mentor cares and she is effective.
This book is designed to help you become a great mentor a true Student Whisperer and leader at the highest level. It will also help you work effectively with such mentors as you pursue your goals and life mission. This book is part deep teaching of the vital principles of great Leadership Education, part self-help workshop, part example through parables, and part exploration of the great ideas that make mentoring and quality learning most effective at all ages.

Review:

Extraordinary! I felt like I was taken by the hand and quided through a mentoring experience, the joy, the pain, and the growth. I found fresh clarity, inspiration, motivation and direction for my own development as a student and mentor. What other books merely talk about this one does. No matter what I say, it would be an understatement. --Kelli Poll, mentor and homeschooling parent

While reading your personal story, my heart soared with yours on that mountain top. I worried when Rick was sick. My memory raced back with yours as you mourned the loss of your friends and your place among your peers. I cried with you on those nights you cried yourself to sleep. My foot twitched with yours while you were sitting on that couch. My breath was held with all those students while waiting for your mentor to comment on your mission. You do make people feel it. You do make them taste, see, and smell it. You make it so real. --Merijane Bench, mother of six

Inspiring and pivotal. In a world where the focus of most teachers and educational organizations is on the curriculum, this work helps mentors focus on the student himself. Whereas most education today is from the outside in...or how to get the curriculum into the student, this work teaches a focus of inside out...finding and bringing out the greatness and talents in the students and using this to inspire and dictate the curriculum. If the root of the word educate is to draw forth or bring forth , then this work promotes education in the truest form of the word. --Roxane Colburn, current Home Schooling Mother (15 years), and previous Elementary School Teacher
