Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Explore the possibilities for teacher development and student learning with celebrated educator, Barbara Walker. Drawing on her experiences with both pre-service and practicing teachers, Walker discusses the importance of learning to collaborate within the school and during classroom interactions while presenting literacy coaches and teachers with the “cycle of literacy coaching”, a step-by-step process for adapting classroom instruction to increase learning. She also outlines best practice strategies for implementation, including the multiple decisions that teachers make before, during, and after a literacy lesson.

“Literacy coaching is a growing professional field in education.  This book would appeal to teachers and administrators in charge of developing student literacy and teacher education.  I would buy it for my literacy support teachers and for my new teachers who teach literacy subjects.”  - Joan Powell, literacy specialist, Whitley County Board of Education, Williamsburg KY

 

“Coaching needs to come across as a service, a support…[Walker] does a good job of describing the coach’s role in a learning community.  [She] use[s] clear language… with a supportive tone.” - Jerri L. Foster, literacy specialist, Bentonville Public Schools, Bentonville, AR

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I had to buy this book for a class. I honestly have never been so disappointed in my life. This book gives a basic overview of literacy coaching that my eight year old daughter could understand. The font is big enough for her to read as well. It is not worth the money that I spent on it. I wish that I didn't have to buy it. If you would like a literacy coaching book that is worth your time and that will give you valuable information, try Katherine Casey's Literacy Coaching The Essentials instead. That book is worth it.

By Dale Johnson on August 28, 2009
Format: Paperback
This book was an easy read. My professor recommended it. All of the strategies at the end of the book are useful the only problem is that most teachers have already used these strategies. I was hoping that Ms. Walker would include strategies that were not so widely used but were successful. I will soon graduate with a masters in reading specialist. I plan to use this book as a resource when teaching.
