Synopsis

The Literacy Coach's Companion, PreK-3 by Maryann E. Mraz

As the importance of literacy education grows, so does the role of literacy coaches. From working with struggling readers to implementing literacy programs within large groups of teachers, literacy coaches need more professional development. As an International Reading Association recommendation, literacy coaches need more professional development and opportunities of specialization and enhancement of their knowledge To combat the literacy coach's frustration over their responsibilities in the face of inconsistent job credentials, various experience levels, and lack of professional development, this book will provide the guidance and resources to support coaching and its multi-faceted demands. With tips and suggestions on how to maintain organization and focus within the early and elementary literacy programs, the book will address literacy for young children from the top down.

instructional knowledge and skills, then this is the text to own. Coaches everywhere have been waiting for a book like this
