This innovative book moves beyond the day-to-day matters of coaching to a deeper examination of how literacy coaching can improve instructional practice. The authors offer research-based strategies that can be used to create the professional and dynamic relationships needed for successful teacher–coach collaborations. Readers will hear the voices of coaches as they analyze their own efforts to scaffold adult learning, guide collaborative inquiry, and support teacher reflection. Featuring concrete examples, this practical book:

  • Provides a model for literacy coaches to analyze and examine their own practice.
  • Details the importance of systematic observation of teaching and how to use observation to shape subsequent coaching sessions.
  • Examines guiding teacher inquiry in whole groups, small groups, and pairs, to reflect and act on teaching and coaching.
  • Charts the usefulness of teachers and coaches talking about teaching, and how this supports the change of teaching practices.
