Expert guidance on coaching and mentoring
Mentors and coaches play a vital role in the teaching profession by providing support, training, and collegiality, alleviating the isolation that teachers so often experience. Coaching expert Jim Knight brought together leading-edge scholars and practitioners of K-12 professional development for this compilation of their visions of coaching, including:
- Instructional coaching
- Content coaching
- Cognitive coaching
Additional topics include mentoring beginning teachers, intergenerational considerations, and working with different personality types. These excellent insights from experienced coaches are especially valuable in supporting teachers in meeting today’s accountability challenges.
