Coaching for Systems and Teacher Change

By Jennifer D. Pierce & Kimberly St. Martin Last updated 2024/05/27


This book is “a comprehensive guide to what effective coaching looks like across the pre-K to 12 grade span and how to conduct powerful coaching cycles with teachers and teams”. It is research-driven, full of citations to support the coaching model (using alliance strategies, observing, modeling, providing performance feedback) and recommended practices. The section on the importance of readiness, how to measure it and guide teachers through change is of particular interest. This book is recommended for those in coaching roles in any subject area.
