The Mentor as an Implementer of the Methodology Practice in Democracy Education

Jasminka Kocoska [2] | Marija Milosevska

Abstract: The responsibility for preparing the students to be part of the process of democracy is divided between all participants in the educational process, especially between parents and professional workers (teachers) who have a role of educators. The task is complex, and the responsibility is huge. The institutions of higher education have practical duty to educate the young students who should later become the professionals who will work with children, teachers and educators. The goal of this paper is to actualize the meaning and function of mentoring as educational category in general and in the preparation of the teaching staff in the methodology under democracy. Mentoring as an effective method is used for helping inexperienced individuals develop and progress in their profession. The keys for establishing a successful mentoring relationship include creating a relationship of trust, clearly defining roles and responsibilities, establishing short- and long- term goals, using open and supportive communication, and collaboratively solving problems. (Byington, 2010) To be learned the democracy should be practiced. It is applicable in the pedagogical practice, where for its study the most important is the teacher, which occurs as a mentor by implementing it and performing mentoring from that area.
