"Finally, a book that I can use: a hands-on, foot-to-the-pedal kind of reading experience. Of all the books on educational coaching available, this one answers my actual day-to-day questions. You can tell Bonnie Davis has been there. An invaluable resource!"
—Mary Kim Schreck, Author, The Red Desk

Concrete guidelines for novice and experienced coaches!

This comprehensive guide encompasses a multilayered model that provides a rich experience for both coach and trainee. How to Coach Teachers Who Don’t Think Like You covers the process and content of coaching and describes a unique approach that encourages teachers to write and reflect upon their practices. Coaches can use literacy strategies to train across content areas and learn how to individualize their approach to honor teachers' distinctive learning styles. The author presents samples of teacher writing and student work generated from coaching and offers narratives from practicing coaches across the country in school-based, district, and independent settings to illustrate the real world of coaching.

With a format that gives readers the flexibility to choose sections best suited to particular coaching situations, the book includes:

  • Specific, field-tested practices to support personal learning differences
  • Strategies for modifying classroom practice and improving student achievement
  • Coaching models for individual teachers and teams of teachers
  • Options for coordinating coaching activities with teachers’ schedules

Whether you are just beginning a coaching career or have several years of experience, this book offers suggestions and avenues for exploration, inspiration, and application.
