Instructional Coaching is the most powerful method for implementing professional learning and change in the classroom! Coaching brings dramatic improvement in teaching practices and student achievement for minimal cost

Whether you have, or need reading coaches, math coaches, instructional coaches, school-based staff developers, mentors, differentiation coaches, data coaches, or school achievement coaches, all will greatly benefit from the wealth of information contained in these research-based programs. Likewise, principals and other administrators can benefit from this informative training as they will learn how to help and guide the teachers that they work with.

Featuring Joellen Killion, Jim Knight, Stephen Barkley, and many successful coaches, the series contains:

  • Four extensive programs: 50-75 minutes each
  • Implementation guide
  • Audio CD Soundtracks

The value of school-based coaches has been proven to increase student achievement. All too often coaches have had very little training. The coach may have been an outstanding teacher, but has never been trained in the art of coaching. Use this professional development program to provide your coaches with all the tools they need. Each program has actual examples of real coaches, teachers, and administrators.

Research shows that when coaching accompanies training, teachers transfer 80 to 90 percent of what they learn into the classroom, compared to only 5 to 10 percent with training alone (Joyce and Showers, 1995).
