Learn how to increase the chances for improved student learning through successful literacy coaches.


Grounded in the philosophy that literacy coaches are to provide professional development across a broad landscape of opportunities, ranging from facilitating a workshop to supporting school literacy leadership teams in conducting collaborative action research, this new edition provides a comprehensive and broad view of job-embedded literacy coaching from elementary through high school.


The Literacy Coach, 2/e investigates literacy coaching from an ethnographic perspective by taking a view of professional development on a continuum of coaching. Written in a conversational format, applications scenarios, and discussion questions provide readers ideas, schedules, and guiding principles to support current literacy coaches and future literacy coaches.  Readers are given observation protocols and broad coaching categories to economize on time and attention during a busy school day. In this new edition of The Literacy Coach, Puig and Froelich have added some guiding thoughts based on experience and current literature to support schools in implementing a Response to Intervention/Instruction model effectively and efficiently with the support of a knowledgeable literacy coach.
