Peer Coaching as a Support to Collaborative Teaching
Little, Peyton Farrell Buzbee
Mentoring & Tutoring: Partnership in Learning, v13 n1 p83-94 Apr 2005
In a collaborative classroom, teachers combine their strengths to work together, coach one another, and provide the best possible environment for their students. Similarly, peer coaching provides educators with a chance to utilize a natural support system at their school. When peer coaching is used in conjunction with collaborative teaching, it enhances teacher improvement and student learning by providing ongoing opportunities for educators to share their unique knowledge bases and expertise, allowing exploration of new ideas and expansion of professional skill repertoires.
