Editorial Reviews

Candace Bixler
"Amust-read for any administrator who employs coaches on their campus and for anyone who acts as a coach, teacher leader, facilitator, or mentor."
Tiffany Wiencken
"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."
Dennis Wilson
"The book provides a usefuloverview of the different ways the concept of coaching applies to one common theme: the goal of improving student learning."
