We will discuss

Other points of discussion will include

- What is the overall idea of mentoring:
- Personal communication leading to awareness of learning styles and skills needed to read and write, cooperative reading and writing leading to sustained reading
- Evaluating progress
- Confidentiality
- Creating an interview for mentors and students the next meeting
