Literacy Coaching

Literacy coaching is about both teacher and children’s learning.

Curriculum, instruction, and assessment are intertwined as coaches work with teachers to plan, reflect and problem solve. Coaching includes sharing resources, setting up learning environments, stop-bys and informal check ins and more formal conversations that include lesson planning sessions, modeling, co-teaching, observing and reflection conversations.

Research shows that in schools where literacy coaches spend more time working directly with teachers, there were higher reading gains (L’Allier, et al, 2010).
