"It is imperative that districts make meaningful choices about the coaching model they invest their money and time in implementing. Without a broad base of knowledge, it is unlikely that coaching can have the greatest impact upon the teachers and students who need it the most."
—Tiffany Wiencken, Instructional Coach Facilitator
Beaverton School District, OR

"A must-read for any administrator who employs coaches on their campus and for anyone who acts as a coach, teacher leader, facilitator, or mentor."
—Candace Bixler, Educational Specialist
Education Service Center, Region XIII, Austin, TX

Practical guidelines for selecting the right type of coaching for your teachers and students!

Coaching supports teacher development and puts teachers' needs at the heart of professional learning by individualizing their learning and by positioning them as professionals. With many different models available, administrators may find it challenging to determine the kind of coaching that best fits the needs of schools, teachers, and students.

This fresh new resource brings together the voices of recognized experts in the field—including Joellen Killion, Cathy Toll, Jane Ellison, Randy Sprick, Jane Kise, Karla Reiss, Lucy West, and Jim Knight—to present unique approaches for coaching teachers and leaders. Comprehensive chapters review the roles of coaches in schools, examine the research base on coaching, and provide in-depth discussions of specific approaches to coaching, including:

  • Literacy coaching
  • Cognitive coaching
  • Instructional coaching
  • Content-focused coaching
  • Classroom management coaching
  • Leadership coaching

Coaching helps readers make more informed choices about a range of coaching approaches to best serve the unique needs of their teachers and schools.
