Literacy leaders are working to provide highly effective, rigorous teaching and learning as they work with families, communities, individuals, and the system simultaneously. To do that, they need to wear many hats, serving as leaders, facilitators, designers, and advocates.
In Cultivating Coaching Mindsets: An Action Guide for Literacy Leaders, Rita M. Bean and Jacy Ippolito lay out a detailed framework to help literacy leaders promote the advancement of literacy instruction that improves and deepens learning. They also explore facilitation techniques for providing meaningful feedback while respecting teachers’ views and knowledge—supporting teachers as they build their capacity to reflect on and improve literacy learning for all students.
