Product description

From the Inside Flap

The Art of Coaching offers all the tools necessary for professionals who coach educators. It demystifies the process of coaching with easy-to-apply, immediately actionable ideas. Elena Aguilar offers a model for transformational coaching designed for new and veteran coaches, teacher leaders, mentors, principals, and other administrators.

This comprehensive research and practice-based guide covers how to create a coaching vision, build trust, listen well, ask powerful questions, and develop a work plan. It also addresses coaching conversations and describes dozens of coaching activities to develop an educator's practice. The Art of Coaching highlights common challenges followed by creative solutions. It's filled with numerous practical tools: rubrics, cheat sheets, and coaching sentence stems.
