Improving Teaching through Coaching. Fastback 277.
Neubert, Gloria A.
This booklet discusses peer coaching as a form of staff development for assisting teachers to transfer new skills into their active teaching repertoire. This assistance can be provided by another teacher, administrator, specialist, or university professor. The first chapter examines some models of peer coaching such as how the coaching is initiated, who serves as coach, and the coach's role in the classroom. The second chapter discusses several elements that research and practice indicate contribute to effective coaching. In the final chapter, suggestions are offered for initiating and implementing coaching at both the preservice and inservice levels. (JD)
