Coaching supports teacher development and puts teachers' needs at the heart of professional learning by individualizing their learning and by positioning them as professionals. With many different models available, administrators may find it challenging to determine the kind of coaching that best fits the needs of schools, teachers, and students.

This fresh new resource brings together the voices of recognized experts in the field, including Joellen Killion, Cathy Toll, Jane Ellison, Randy Sprick, Jane Kise, Karla Reiss, Lucy West, and Jim Knight, to present unique approaches for coaching teachers and leaders. Comprehensive chapters review the roles of coaches in schools, examine the research base on coaching, and provide in-depth discussions of specific approaches to coaching including: literacy coaching; cognitive coaching; instructional coaching; content-focused coaching; classroom management coaching; and leadership coaching. Coaching helps readers make more informed choices about a range of coaching approaches to best serve the unique needs of their teachers and schools.
