Practical Literacy Coaching A Collection of Tools to Support Your Work

by Jan Miller Burkins

Practical Literacy Coaching A Collection of Tools to Support Your Work Synopsis

Based on her work as a literacy coach and an instructional coach, it became apparent to Jan Miller Burkins that parallels and overlaps exist in the work coaches do with teachers. Many coaches were inventing and reinventing the same tools. This repetition of effort led Burkins to compile this collection of tools and resources. The diversity of literacy coaching demands that coaches must be competent across many levels of interaction with people and must have expertise in an array of areas from communication to technology to literacy research. This resource provides specific tools and resources that respond to those needs.
