Work with teachers to improve adolescents’ literacy achievement!

Prompted by state and federal mandates, school districts are focusing their attention on improving adolescents’ literacy skills and increasingly turning to literacy coaches for instructional support. This rare resource for secondary-level coaches focuses on five pillars of adolescent literacy: time to read for enjoyment, choice in reading materials, strategies for reading texts, vocabulary instruction, and motivation to read—and shows coaches how to work effectively with middle and high school teachers across the content areas.

Drawing on their deep experience in the field, the authors provide guidance on such key topics as how to:

  • Clearly define the role and responsibilities of literacy coaches
  • Use conversation wisely to make effective decisions and identify design needs
  • Implement ongoing professional development for teachers
  • Establish collaborative relationships and help teachers use data to inform instruction

Replete with real-world vignettes, current research, and reproducible forms to help facilitate literacy coaching in schools, this accessible resource is an invaluable aid for any literacy leader working with teachers of adolescents.
