How can we cultivate the rigorous and relevant instruction all students deserve? How can we help teachers grow and experience meaningful, positive change?
Educators today understand that schools must evolve to prepare students for futures in a fast-paced, ever-changing career landscape. As a teacher-turned-coach to instructional coaches all over the world, Sherry St. Clair sees again and again how much support teachers need to rise to this challenge. However, too often, the traditional approach to instructional coaching falls short.
In Coaching Redefined, St. Clair suggests another way. St. Clair invites all educators charged with improving student outcomes—expert and novice coaches, instructional leaders, and principals—to join the coaching redefined movement. In this new paradigm, coaches unlock a virtuous cycle of growth by leading change at both the school and individual levels. By drawing on the wisdom of business leaders and clearly laying out her tried-and-true approach to instructional improvement, St. Clair guides readers to grow into coaches redefined, leading teachers toward their own unlimited growth so that they, in turn, can do the same for students.
Praise for Coaching Redefined
"Coaching Redefined will turn you from a good instructional coach into a great one with the application of new tools gleaned by St. Clair from the business world. And with coaching based on solid values and energized by new perspectives, you can guide the teachers under your care to greatness as well. This book is transformational in its scope and inspirational in its approach.
