Expert coaches and anyone coaching for the first time will love the The Literacy Coach, 2/e!  

 

 

Reviewers Sum it up!

 

“The framework in which this book is embedded is one of the more elegant ones in existence.” 

Donna Alvermann, The University of Georgia

 

“I found this book to be helpful to not only literacy coaches, but to classroom teachers who may want to become coaches or merely better understand their roles. I also believe building principals would find the book extremely useful…I only wish I had been given such access to all of this information five years ago!”

Amy Ely, Brush Middle School

 

What distinguishes The Literacy Coach: Guiding in the Right Direction (2nd edition) from other worthwhile titles on the same topic is the authors’ decision to avoid focusing on specific coaching models in favor of taking an ethnographic stance toward working with all literacy coaches, regardless of the model in which they find themselves. 

 

Take a peek inside…

  • Addresses the needs of elementary, middle, and high school literacy coaches while considering Response to Intervention/Instruction
  • Supports the professional development of literacy coaches by
    1. Giving a comprehensive look at how learners learn vs. just learning to read;
    2. Implementing the idea of categorizing coaching points (into three broad categories) to economize on time and attention; and
    3. Including three levels of observations (primary, secondary, and tertiary).
    4. Includes a description of the four cornerstones of any successful school reform model: students, teachers, administrators, and the literacy coach.
    5. Considers the NRP report and IRA’s Standards for Literacy Coaches.
    6.
