"Smith and Lewis develop in-depth the single most effective approach to professional development-mentoring. Facilitative mentoring is flexible, experiential, and relational. This book goes beyond buzzwords to specific steps and contexts, richly illustrated with real-world examples. For those committed to mentoring as effective and deeply transformative, this interactively-designed book is an invaluable and indispensable guide."

"This important and original book, drawing on research and practice as well as vignettes that reflect practitioners' perspectives and experiences, fills a much needed gap in the TESOL professional development literature and will be an invaluable resource for teachers and teacher educators."
