Building Teachers' Capacity for Success: A Collaborative Approach for Coaches and School Leaders
Hall, Pete; Simeral, Alisa
Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development
Emphasizing just three things--identifying teachers' strengths, maximizing their potential, and building their capacity--this book lays out a clear and practical pathway toward higher student achievement. Front-line advice from a principal and an instructional coach helps you increase your faculty's instructional effectiveness by implementing the principles of strength-based school improvement: (1) Why a partnership among three elements--the building administrator, the instructional coach, and a professional learning community--virtually assures that teacher professional development efforts will be personal, meaningful, and effective; (2) How an instructional coach can help teachers move through a Continuum of Self-Reflection directly linked to classroom effectiveness; and (3) What building administrators can do to inspire, encourage, and activate the potential and output of every single teacher. Two easy-to-use tools and lots of anecdotes and examples from the field ensure you know what to look for, do, and say in order to start seeing positive results right now.
