Product description

Review

A must-read for any administrator who employs coaches on their campus and for anyone who acts as a coach, teacher leader, facilitator, or mentor.--Candace Bixler, Educational Specialist (6/11/2008 12:00:00 AM)

It is imperative that districts make meaningful choices about the coaching model they invest their money and time in implementing. Without a broad base of knowledge, it is unlikely that coaching can have the greatest impact upon the teachers and students who need it the most.--Tiffany Wiencken, Instructional Coach Facilitator (6/11/2008 12:00:00 AM)

The book provides a useful overview of the different ways the concept of coaching applies to one common theme: the goal of improving student learning.--Dennis Wilson, Superintendent (7/2/2008 12:00:00 AM) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
