Description
Education has embraced the coaching model as a framework for improving teaching and instruction. Yet, despite the popularity of the paradigm, there is little consensus around what educational coaching looks like in practice. To address this ambiguity, Coaching for Achievement considers several questions. What can we learn from coaches—especially successful athletic coaches—that can be applied in classroom instruction, educational leadership, collaboration, and professional development? How can educators assess and develop traits embodied by these successful coaches? What specific, practical tools will aid in this application? To answer these questions, this book will take you to a “coaches’ clinic,” a gathering of the most effective athletic coaches in their respective fields. Using lessons learned from their successes (and failures), you will have the opportunity to develop your own game plan to use in your school or classroom.
