Editorial Reviews

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 2008-06-11)

"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 2008-06-11)

"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 2008-07-02)

This will be with me from now on as long as I coach. Mr. Knight lays out everything you need to know but didn't have the faintest idea that it was something you should ask. Under my elbow or at my side is where this book will be from now until whenever.

There are many different kinds of coaching and administrators are put to the task to choose the form that best suits teacher and student patterns: this resource offers insights from many professionals in the field on different kinds of coaching and results. Education libraries will find this excellent for administrator reference.
