Ideas, inspiration, and the ‘moves’ to keep student learning at the center of instructional coaching--no matter where it occurs

As we return to ‘normal’ the guidance in this book will ensure we continue to focus on deeply knowing our students, having a coherent and focused curriculum, and coaching from a place of formative assessment and evidence. Authors Diane Sweeney and Leanna Harris, whose best-selling books have influenced thousands of K-12 coaches, have written Student-Centered Coaching from a Distance to help coaches and teachers adapt. Each chapter includes coaching ‘moves’ that can be used in virtual, hybrid, and in person settings. These technology-focused moves are accompanied by language stems, note catchers, and other tools that provide structure and coherence to coaching conversations. Each chapter also provides specific moves that promote equity and work to remove many of the barriers that have been brought into clearer focus during the challenges of our times. Readers will find:

a highly effective coaching approach tailored to the distance learning context
strategies to help close opportunity gaps
in-depth instruction for co-teaching from a distance

The enduring practices in this book will help coaches partner with teachers during challenging times and keep student learning at the center--for years to come.
