Teachers are better together!
Nationally and internationally, educators are excited about Les Foltos’ techniques for effective peer coaching. The model for Peer Coaching outlined in his 2011 TED talk has been implemented in 40 countries and counting with powerful results.
Now you have it in this concise guide to effective coaching! Train teachers to help each other refine their classroom strategies and tailor them to 21st Century needs. Foltos’ insights include
- How peer coaching that makes a difference involves much more than just one teacher offering another advice.
- How a coaching relationship is first built on trust, and then on the willingness to take risks.
- Why peer coaching should focus on adapting teaching methods to the technological future of education.
For schools to effect the changes the future demands, teachers must learn how to collaborate effectively. With this book, Les Foltos shows the way.
“Not only does Peer Coaching explain how to effectively support and leverage peer coaches, it 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.”
