The Anatomy of Coaching: Coaching through Storytelling
Blackstone, Phyllis A.
Journal of Language and Literacy Education, v3 n1 p48-58 Sep 2007
In this article, the author posits that storytelling can be used as a method for developing positive interpersonal relationships between coaches and classroom teachers. The author argues that developing interpersonal relationships is a necessary but challenging aspect of successful coaching, and that storytelling offers a mechanism for greater understanding and communication. The author concludes by developing her own story to illustrate how the grammar of the story can aid in the analysis of coaching.
