Researchers agree that launching professional learning community (PLC) teams may be easy, but turning them into productive, sustainable teams that improve adult and student learning is difficult. Creating a Coaching Culture for Professional Learning Communities is designed to help readers build a collaborative coaching culture that ensures all adults learn in a way that keeps the focus on student learning. Each chapter tailors information and exercises to fit the reader¿s leadership style, the learning styles of team members, and the particular needs of the school to ensure that hard work produces results: improved student learning.Jane Kise and Beth Russell approach collaborative teams through the lens of personality type, which pinpoints how individuals gain energy, take in information, make decisions, and approach work and life. By understanding personality preferences, teams communicate more clearly, avoid ¿group think,¿ balance decision making and problem solving, work toward positive conflict resolution, balance short-term and long-term strategic planning, and achieve both adult and student learning needs. A constructive use of differences goes beyond tolerance. Instead, it focuses on the benefits that diverse perspectives provide. This understanding propels PLC teams toward effectiveness.

In Responsive Literacy Coaching, Cheryl Dozier draws on twenty-four years of experience as an elementary classroom teacher and teacher educator to present both a theoretical framework and practical tools to enact responsive literacy coaching. Through thoughtful and purposeful coaching, teachers learn effective ways to improve literacy instruction and student achievement. The range of tools offered in the text invite customization based on the reader's specific instructional context. This framework empowers literacy coaches and teachers through conversation, sustained engagement, and reflective analysis. Dozier argues that at its best, literacy coaching is responsive, collegial, thoughtful, thought-provoking, deliberate, reflective, and transferable. In this book she invites readers to enter into a coaching dialogue, through: vignettes that bring coaching interactions to life; prompts to engage both teachers and students; occasions for collaborative reflection; frequently-asked questions. As literacy tasks are documented and analyzed, coaching interactions logged and categorized, and assessment scores scrutinized, Dozier cautions coaches to avoid being so caught up in the doing of coaching that one forgets the purpose behind it. In this book she provides an occasion for them to step back, and ask, what is the goal of literacy coaching? What kind of literacy environments and experiences are we creating for our schools and our students? What is possible as we engage in transformative literacy practices? While the tools offered in this book do not provide a “quick fix,” they foster critical thinking and sustained inquiry that leads to positive change for both teachers and students.

Educators know that teachers are a school's most essential strength. In Building Teachers' Capacity for Success, authors Pete Hall (winner of the 2004 ASCD Outstanding Young Educator Award) and Alisa Simeral offer a straightforward plan to help site-based administrators and instructional coaches collaborate to bring out the best in every teacher, build a stronger and more cohesive staff, and achieve greater academic success. Their model of Strength-Based School Improvement is an alternative to a negative, deficit-approach focused on fixing what's wrong. Instead, they show school leaders how to achieve their goals by working together to maximize what's right. Filled with clear, proven strategies and organized around two easy-to-use tools--the innovative Continuum of Self-Reflection and a feedback-focused walk-through model--this book offers a differentiated approach to coaching and supervision centered on identifying and nurturing teachers' individual strengths and helping them reach new levels of professional success and satisfaction. Here, you'll find front-line advice from the authors, one a principal and the other an instructional coach, on just what to look for, do, and say in order to start seeing positive results right now.
