For Mentors

“The mentor’s primary role is to act as a guide and resource in the accomplishment of specific tasks during the exhibition process.” 

- IB Exhibition guidelines (2008)

Mentors may be drawn from all members of the learning community. Mentors help students set and meet their goals by asking questions, suggesting resources, helping to interpret difficult information and facilitating interviews or contacts outside the school. They may also contribute as subject area experts.

The entire learning community is involved in the exhibition, either in the organization and timing, in accessing resources (including primary resources in the wider community) or as mentors throughout the process. The community celebrates with students at the exhibition celebration.
