“This text is supported by the authors' thorough understanding of coaching and learning theory as well as their practical ideas about how theory can be applied in practice.
The authors draw on evidence about coaching to create a wealth of strategies for teachers to use in the classroom, while being supported through coaching, alongside a developmental scale to evaluate their practice.
Coach behaviors are analyzed in detail, particularly the interpersonal skills needed to conduct a reflective dialogue with their coachee. Using this book will enable a teacher coach to model the reflective learning dialogue process for trainee or experienced teachers to follow.”
