Teemant, Annela; Wink, Joan; Tyra, Serena
Teaching and Teacher Education: An International Journal of Research and Studies, v27 n4 p683-693 May 2011
This study evaluates a performance-based instructional coaching model intended to improve teacher pedagogy and classroom organization for educating diverse student populations. Elementary teachers (N = 21) participated in a 30-h workshop and seven individual coaching sessions across an academic year. The coaching model promoted use of the Standards for Effective Pedagogy, five research-based practices known to increase student achievement. Findings demonstrate performance-based instructional coaching led to statistically significant (a) improvements in teacher pedagogy, (b) patterns of teacher growth, and (c) changes in classroom organization. Implications for improving teachers' ultimate achievement, the coaching protocol, and research are addressed.
