Publisher: International Reading Association
Author: Cathy A. Toll
In the decade since the first edition of The Literacy Coachs Survival Guide, education has changed considerably. Reading First and No Child Left Behind have faded, while Race to the Top, the Common Core State Standards, PARCC and Smarter Balanced assessments, and Response to Intervention have become focal points. Although the fundamentals of literacy coaching remain the same, coaching has broadened in scope, and Cathy Toll has refined her own approach with all the changes in education at the forefront, combined with her vast experience with thousands of coaches across the world. This heavily revised and updated edition of Tolls go-to handbook reflects all of these changes and guides new and experienced literacy coaches through important topics, such as the following: Effecting change Working with teacher partners individually and in teams Communicating well in coaching conversations Dealing with difficult situations Coaching around special initiatives, such as the CCSS and RTI
