Along with coaching skills and knowledge, this book provides guidance for leveraging instructional interventions that form the foundation of effective instructional practice.

This user- friendly resource also contains chapter organizers, resources for deeper learning, forms, worksheets, checklists, logs, reports, and all the other tools coaches and would-be coaches need. This book is perfect for coaches and aspiring coaches along with the staff developers, trainers, teacher leaders, principals, and other educators who work with coaches and oversee coaching programs.
