"An inspiration. This book is a must read for anyone who believes that skilled teachers, and good teaching, are at the core of what’s needed to transform schools to meet the needs of today’s learners. Les Foltos draws from the professional learning and organizational change literature as well as from his vast experience working in schools around the globe to bring the point home."
"There is much rhetoric in education around the role of peer coaching for teachers, but less understanding of how to make coaching effective. Dr. Foltos has been at the front of the peer coaching movement with more than a decade of experience working in over 40 countries to build communities of professional learners supporting each other.
"The insights and ideas in this book works in many ways as a guide for the schoolleader and peer who wants to build a climate of sharing and collaboration built on trust and reflection. Based on his vast experience, research and empathy Les Foltos shows anyone involved in education the path to future learning environments."
Dr Les Foltos offers a wonderful insight into the theoretical world of Peer Coaching as well as invaluable practical lessons gained from many years of observing and supporting teachers across the globe. I thoroughly recommend this book to anyone with a passion for collaborating with colleagues to improve the future of their students.
"The book explains in words what every teacher and school leader should already be considering: how to prepare our students for the coming century by collaborating, sharing, and using technology as a powerful tool."
"Whenever I get asked for cost-effective ways to transform professional development, I point people towards peer- coaching and Les Foltos, the crown prince of peer coaching. Now I can point them toward this great book. Not only does it explain how to effectively support and leverage peer coaches, but specifically addresses how these coaches can be a critical element in supporting 21st century education and the '4 C's'. It's a great contribution to the 21st century PD literature."
"Peer Coaches: Unlocking the Power of Collaboration will be a useful tool for any district undertaking the development of a peer coaching program. The future of education rests on collaboration among teachers to provide the best learning activities and embedded technology for students, and peer coaching provides the vehicle that will allow that collaboration to be effective."
"In this book, Les Foltos presents an outstanding and practical case for schools to develop staff by utilizing peer coaching. As a result, today’s students will learn the 21st century skills they will need for the future."
"This book narrows in on an important concept: people discuss the importance of collaboration, but successful collaboration is rarely defined. Through Peer Coaching, Les Foltos analyzes factors and processes of how to develop innovative, coherent, educational instruction, with student learning central to its focus."
