How to Plan and Implement a Peer Coaching Program
About the Author | Comments
About This Book
Although teachers interact with many people every day, rarely do they collaborate with other teachers or observe their colleagues at work in the classroom. That professional isolation can be troubling to new and veteran teachers alike.
In this book, Pam Robbins describes how schools can implement a peer coaching program that serves as a professional support group. She describes peer coaching as a process in which two or more colleagues work together to reflect on current practices; expand, refine, and build new skills; share ideas; teach one another; conduct research; or solve problems.
Robbins describes how to get started, outlines logistical considerations, and offers coaching guidelines, conferencing strategies, and training suggestions. She shows how teachers can work together to create a support system that keeps morale high and helps everyone continue to improve their instructional skills.
