Create Unstoppable Teams through Collaborative Coaching!

When teachers, coaches, mentors, and administrators successfully work together in a collaborative coaching partnership, everyone’s effectiveness increases—and student achievement grows. The Coaching Partnership provides educators with a unique perspective and approach to instructional coaching centered on mutual and reciprocal accountability for continuous improvement. This essential resource provides the guidance and tools educators need to implement a coaching partnership system in their schools and achieve their ultimate goal: improved student learning outcomes.

Drawing on their extensive experience and years of research, the authors identify all the necessary components for a successful coaching partnership, and show teachers, coaches, mentors, and administrators how to:

  • -Optimize coaching partnerships with clearly defined processes and roles
  • -Foster a culture of generative thinking to encourage learning, inquiry, and lasting change
  • -Build trust to create successful collaborative, equitable relationships
  • -Use frameworks to implement an evidence-based approach to coaching
  • -Leverage academic language and adult communication strategies as drivers of success
  • -Commit to an effective coaching system that makes improved performance last

In addition to clear and effective strategies, each chapter contains real-life vignettes from the field, coaching-in-action videos, ideas for productive partnerships, reflective practice questions, and helpful definitions. Plus, a Coaching System Planning Tool will help each member of the coaching team reflect, collaborate, and take purposeful, immediate action—all with the goal of creating a learning environment where students thrive.

Grounded in research, this accessible guide offers a practical and systematic approach for creating a vital coaching culture at any school!
