Instructional Coaching Implementation: Considerations for K-12 Administrators
Johnson, Kelly Gomez
Journal of School Administration Research and Development, v1 n2 p37-40 Win 2016
Instructional coaching is a reality in many schools today, yet administrators often lack experience or background on how to utilize this professional development model effectively. Instructional coaching can help administrators balance the managerial and instructional leadership responsibilities required of their role. As districts adopt the practice as a part of their professional development model, administrators require a clear understanding of the opportunities and factors associated with coaching. Instructional coaching has the potential to positively impact the way teachers teach and students learn in our schools, and when effectively implemented, it can also positively affect the way administrators lead. While not a quick fix, administrators have the opportunity to use instructional coaching to improve their school's success one teacher and one student at a time and hence their overall success as a school leader.
