(Saphier & West, 2010) The Impact of Coaching Coaching Considerations "When teachers were given only a description of new instructional skills, 10% used the skill in the classroom. When coaching was added to the staff development, however, approximately 95% of the teachers implemented the new skills in their classroom." (Knight, 2009) "A strong coaching mentor who can grow professionally as much as those they mentor" helps attract, retain, and develop new teachers. (Watkins, 2005). "I support teachers as they try to improve their instruction and meet the needs of all kids." -Aaron (as cited by Chval, et. al., 2010) Funding Sources Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 2000
Reading Excellence Act (REA), 1999
NCLB Reading First (RF) Initiative, 2002
Response To Intervention (RTI), 2004
District funds Cautions The intent of coaching is not to "fix" weak teachers. The intent is to build systemic capacity.
Little peer-reviewed research currently exists to define and contextualize instructional coaching. Therefore, instructional coaching "identity" can be inconsistent.
Coaches may be learning new content or pedagogy along with coachees.
To prevent teacher resistance, coaches must be cognizant of and avoid "attempt/attack/abandon" practices. Coaching Support principal support
content-focused professional learning
