The Power of Peer Coaching
Colucci, Anthony
Educational Horizons, v92 p6-8 Feb-Mar 2014
As a new teacher, what will you do when you realize there is an aspect of your practice that you want to improve? Will you make a plea to your administration to attend an expensive workshop? Will you try to cram a class into your already jam-packed schedule? You may even try to hide your weakness and hope nobody notices. Is there another option to consider? Have you thought about peer coaching? Peer coaching is a formal process of two teachers coming together to reflect and refine their practice through structured conversation. Like many other educators who have been involved in peer coaching, Anthony Colucci is convinced that it is a powerful means of professional development for those who have a sincere desire for improvement. The power of peer coaching lies in the fact that a teacher voluntarily participates in this confidential process and it is not tied to his formal administrative evaluation.
