There are books out there that will walk you though the peer-coaching cycle in more depth that this book does. However, I would urge teachers interested in improving their work and student learning consider this as one of their first reads. This is the first book (in this area of peer coaching) that I have read that provides a framework for lesson design, observation (both self and peer), and reflection.

Since there is no "look inside" option for this book, I will list the chapters: 1. What are the benefits of analyzing student work? 2. The elements of collaborative analysis of student work, 3. Understanding reflective practice, 4. Forming collaborative learning teams, 5. Guiding collaborative discussion of student work, 6. Creating professional development plans, 7. Designing quality lessons, 8. Exploring Instructional strategies and 9. Analyzing lessons as they unfold.

Bella's framework is based upon Schlecty's (lesson) Design Qualities. Costa and Liebman's Intellectual Engagement Indicators and the author's five Standards of and Educator's Practice . She uses Understanding By Design as the model for designing quality lessons. The framework is used when developing lessons, monitoring instruction, analyzing the lesson with peers in a collaborative setting, reflecting on one's own practice and developing a personal professional development plan.

What do I like about this book? While other books on coaching (peer or otherwise) focus on the coaching/collaboration cycle, this book really gives a framework for developing and analyzing the work of the teacher, before, during and after the lesson(s). This is the first book on analysis of student work that mentions getting feedback from students (not just peers).
