Key features

Although the basic approach (alignment of the Cultural Proficiency and Cognitive Coaching frameworks) will be retained in the new edition, there are several important updates in the this latest edition:

(1) Chapters will reference additional, research-based coaching models where relevant.
(2) The authors will revise the self-assessment instruments in the previous editions
(3) This book will reference the latest versions of the Cultural Proficiency and Cognitive Coaching Frameworks, both of which have been updated since the publication of the first edition.
(4) This edition will include revised case studies that focus more specifically on using data as a point of improvement for practice.
(5) This edition will introduce the concept of "Breakthrough Questions" (a powerful idea that was introduced in later CP books)
(6) This edition will feature an all new District Action Plan
(7) This edition will address specific questions that have surfaced in the authors' consulting work in the years since the publication of the book, e.g.,

  • Now that we have coaches, on what should they focus?
  • Why should we train our coaches?
  • How do coaches fit in our overall instructional plan?
  • Our coaches have been assigned to "fix" teachers.  How can we change that focus?
