This book provides essential coaching tools to support teachers in planning and implementing instruction aligned with the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). The authors explain the key instructional shifts brought about by the CCSS in K-5 English language arts classrooms. Eighteen specific strategies for coaching large groups, small groups, and individual teachers are presented, including clear-cut procedures, vivid illustrative examples, and 26 reproducible forms. Grounded in research on adult learning, the book addresses common coaching challenges and how to overcome them. The large-size format facilitates photocopying; purchasers also get access to a Web page where they can download and print the reproducible materials.
