Description

The essential coaching moves that every coach needs to know

Student-centered coaching is a highly-effective, evidence-based coaching model that shifts the focus from “fixing” teachers to collaborating with them to design instruction that targets student outcomes. But what does this look like in practice?

Student-Centered Coaching: The Moves shows you the day-to-day coaching moves that build powerful coaching relationships. This innovative book is the perfect companion to Diane Sweeney’s Student-Centered Coaching: A Guide for K-8 Coaches and Principals and Student-Centered Coaching at the Secondary Level. Readers will find:

  • Coaching moves that can be used before, during, and after lessons
  • An abundance of field-tested tools and practices that can be put to immediate use
  • Original video clips that depict and unpack key moves
  • Richly detailed anecdotes from practicing coaches that provide multiple access points and strategies

Written for coaches who work with teachers in all K-12 content areas, Student-Centered Coaching: The Moves will help coaches support teacher development, foster a culture of learning, and improve student achievement.

"This book contains many hands-on techniques that can serve coaches well in working with teachers (and students). It addresses a lot of the common pitfalls that occur when learning to be a coach. The book serves as a great tool for experienced coaches as well as those just entering into the position."
—Ann M. Lorey, Common Core Coach and Science Department Instructional Supervisor
Palo Alto Unified School District, CA
