9780807749029: Coaching Whole School Change: Lessons in Practice from a Small High School

Steeped in practical knowledge and eager to share it with others, school coaches are at the forefront of education reform. This book provides an in-depth look at the practice of coaching in a small high school, an increasingly popular school improvement strategy. The authors identify and describe a range of coaching habits that will support instructional planning across the curriculum, distributed leadership, and the development of a strong professional learning community. Because no one person on their own can ever make school change occur, the text looks at coaching from the perspectives of the coach as well as the individual teachers she works with. This guide to effective coaching:
*Focuses on change coaching which encompasses school culture and organization, as well as curriculum content.
*Describes how coaching develops and changes in the life of one school over a period of 5 years.
*Provides images of practice and tools that will be invaluable to school coaches, administrators, district staff, staff developers, and organizations that support coaching.

Review:

''The heart of this book is the detailed descriptions of coaching relationships as they were worked out over the years. The authors eschew academic abstraction and deal with what people see and say and feel--with the relationships and reality of classroom life. And because they are gifted teachers themselves, we get an extra treat--a vivid portrait of good teaching.'' --From the Foreword by Thomas Sobol, Professor Emeritus, Teachers College, Columbia University and former Commissioner of Education for New York State
