Disequilibrium: An Instructional Coach's Reflection
Butler, Melinda S.; Votteler, Nancy K.
Texas Journal of Literacy Education, v4 n1 p29-36 Sum 2016
When Debbie Miller, educational consultant and author of "Reading with Meaning" (2013) and "Teaching with Intention" (2008) visited a Title I elementary school in Texas, the instructional reading coach was challenged in her thinking about best practices for independent reading. Ms. Miller's visit included modeling interactive read alouds and conducting one-to-one reading conferences during independent reading. Additionally, Ms. Miller, the classroom teachers, and the instructional reading coaches discussed the practice of managed choice of texts during independent reading (e.g., restricting student choice to the genre used during the interactive read aloud). As a result of Ms. Miller's visits, the instructional coaches and the teachers thoughtfully and intentionally changed their teaching practices.
