Overview

The Literacy Coaching Challenge: Models and Methods for Grades K-8 / Edition 1

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.
