On Becoming a Peer Coach: Practices, Identities, and Beliefs of Inexperienced Coaches.
Perkins, Sally J.
Journal of Curriculum and Supervision, v13 n3 p235-54 Spr 1998
Describes skills, relationships, and beliefs disclosed by six voluntary teacher participants in a peer coaching workshop. Participants had difficulty with all the communication and agenda skills they were trained in. They asked few open-ended questions, paraphrased infrequently, and used few facilitative probes. Instead, they used evaluation, close-ended questions, and negative presuppositions. Training implications are discussed. (27 footnotes) (MLH)
