Self-assessment tools are included to help literacy coaches reflect on their own activities, develop their role and goals, and establish themselves as valuable literacy resources within the school. Assorted tools help coaches open and maintain lines of communication, form action teams, and procure and organize materials. And the numerous professional development tools help coaches enrich teachers’ knowledge of instructional strategies. All tools are also available for download.
