Killion, Joellen; Harrison, Cindy
Learning Forward
"Taking the Lead" outlines 10 practical and powerful roles for school-based coaches responsible for helping teachers increase their capacity to serve all students. The second edition is a rich update to Killion and Harrison's essential resource and includes dozens of online tools that support deep exploration and implementation of the concepts covered in the book. Features include: (1) Updated review of the evidence on the effects of coaching; (2) Deep discussions about the 10 roles of coaches; (3) Real-world vignettes based on authentic experiences of coaches; (4) Focus on the culture of coaching and the power of team coaching; (5) Chapter about troubleshooting challenges to coaching; and (6) Guidance for school--and system leaders who create the conditions supporting coaches and coaching programs. With new content ranging from the strategic to the specific, this practical resource guides school-based coaches and leaders in the practice of student-focused coaching. System leaders may use Taking the Lead as they advocate the design of a coaching program focused on team, school, and district learning goals. School-based coaches and teacher leaders will find advice for coaching a reluctant colleague, drawing up an effective working agreement, reflecting on their own practice, or troubleshooting a challenge.
