Editorial Reviews

Marie Costanza
Quality Teaching in a Culture of Coaching is an exemplary resource for any school district whose goal is to establish a common language that can be used by mentors, administrators and coaches. Steve Barkley provides practical coaching models that are grounded in research, and he provides real examples that can be adapted to any school. The Career in Teaching Program of the Rochester City School District has included this book as a "must read" by all mentors in the program.
Diane Ray
This book is a must for any educator striving to make positive changes in student achievement! Steve Barkley provides the best practical approaches for educators to view student behaviors as they relate to the strategies teachers are implementing in the classroom. This book outlines how increased collaboration through ongoing coaching is critical for improving student achievement and refining the skills of every teacher.
Denny Berry
As the consummate practitioner he is, Stephen Barkley has worked tirelessly for twenty-five years, long before it became popular, to educate so many others about the immense power of teachers coaching their peers so that all students learn. His accessible language, his practical and immediately useful strategies, and his inspiring stories make this book the single most important resource for any school or school system caring about their 'culture' of coaching.
Jim Knight
Stephen Barkley's book on coaching was one of the first I read when we were developing our instructional coaching approach, and it remains one of my favorites. Anyone interested in improving instruction will find a lot of useful information here.
