"School coaching is an increasingly popular school-change strategy, yet we have relatively few detailed pictures of actual coaching practice. This book provides an in-depth look at the practice of coaching in a small high school, and includes case studies, stories, tools, and artifacts from the life of the school."
"This expanded second edition provides teachers and administrators with strategies and resources for working together to examine and discuss student work, such as essays, projects, art work, math problems, and more. Providing real examples of how educators can do this, the authors describe three structured conversations, or protocols: the Collaborative Assessment Conference, the Tuning Protocol, and the Consultancy. The book also offers case studies from schools that developed their own protocols."
