5.0 out of 5 stars Jim Knight Knows His Stuff! October 2, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As a new instructional coach, this book has served as a guide in setting me off on the right foot toward a successful career. I've been able to transfer countless lessons I learned from this book into my career as a coach. It entices self-reflection and motivates almost as though Jim Knight were sitting in front of you coaching you on coaching. Definitely a page-turner! Highly recommend!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Rosetta Stone ! April 6, 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I total five star rating !

Jim Knight has brought us the Rosetta Stone !

Almost overnight we have greatly increased the expectations of students. We give teachers 100 page 'learning modules' to tell them what to teach....But we do next to nothing about 'how' !

My work over 40 plus years in education indicates that the biggest correlate to student success are the skills of the teacher !

Without instructional coaching, those skills will not grow to match the demands of Common Core !

Teaching is the only performance profession that has yet to embrace coaching and videotaping of its work followed by feedback.

I agree with Jim Knight that Instructional Coaching is THE PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT MODEL FOR THE 21st Century !
