Read a Q & A with Sharon Walpole, our April Author of the Month!
When the goal is supporting excellent teaching, there is no "one-size-fits-all" approach. This popular practitioner resource and text helps readers navigate the many choices involved in developing and fine-tuning a coaching program that offers the best fit for a particular school. The authors draw on current research as well as their extensive experience in K-8 settings. They provide clear guidance (with helpful reproducibles) on:
  • Major coaching models and how to choose among them.
  • Applying principles of adult learning and motivation.
  • The role of reading assessment in coaching.
  • Balancing classroom-level, grade-level, and whole-school tasks.
  • Special considerations in middle school coaching.
See also The Literacy Coach's Handbook, Second Edition, which offers a complete primer on the role of the literacy coach and what coaches need to know to get started.
