Literacy Coaching: Engaging and Learning with Teachers
Dozier, Cheryl L.
Language and Literacy Spectrum, v18 p11-19 2008
Literacy coaching, a unique and generative opportunity to engage with and learn from teachers, is currently viewed as a powerful intervention to increase student literacy achievement. This article focuses on eight principles for responsive literacy coaching. To build trusting relationships, coaches engage with teachers in literacy events, confirm teachers' strengths, find accessible entry points, examine students work, and collaboratively problem solve. Working side by side with teachers in classrooms, literacy coaches notice, name, and model literacy instructional practices.
