The Literacy Coaching Challenge: Models and Methods for Grades K-8
McKenna, Michael C.; Walpole, Sharon
Guilford Publications
When the goal is supporting excellent teaching, there is no "one-size-fits-all" approach. This book helps literacy coaches and administrators 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 and their personal experiences in K-8 settings to provide guidance in nine chapters: (1) Models of Coaching; (2) Serving Adult Learners; (3) Serving Adult Learners in School Contexts; (4) The Role of Assessment in Coaching; (5) Providing Professional Support; (6) Classroom-Level Coaching; (7) Grade-Level Coaching; (8) Literacy Coaching in the Middle Grades; and (9) The Challenge of Reluctant Teachers. Reproducibles are included.
