Can teachers, principals, and professors lead their students toward profound learning until they have been there themselves? Peer coaching offers a remarkable vehicle to join with students as learners and together build a community of learners. Peer coaching is a powerful process whereby professional educators can assist and be assisted by fellow educators of equal status, and this volume presents it all with clarity, economy, honesty, and conviction. This volume will be of interest and value not only to classroom teachers and school administrators, but also to central office personnel, and university faculty committed to promoting adult development within the schools. Reviews of the first edition: "It's all here. A thoughtful rationale for peer coaching; what it is and what it isn't; who does what and in what sequence; and why a system should get it going...this tidy, approachable little volume will be of great value...to classroom teachers and school administrators." Roland S. Barth, Senior Lecturer in Education, Harvard University
