Literacy coaches are being added to elementary school staffs at an incredible rate. Yet there is little available that shows what the day by day role of a literacy coach looks like. Jennifer Allen, author of the bestselling book Becoming a Literacy Leader, presents a comprehensive model for coaching through video segments filmed over an entire year. Her "layered coaching" approach includes gathering and providing resources to teachers, collaborative teaching and observation, study groups, new teacher mentoring, and curriculum mapping.

The program includes samples of all of these coaching layers, focusing on two teachers early in their careers - Jessica, a first-year teacher, and Jeni, a third-year teacher. You'll see these teachers move between their classrooms, new teacher mentoring programs, and observation programs. Through it all, Jennifer coaches and guides their learning, taking her lead from the teachers as needs emerge.

The kit includes a 54 page full color workshop guide in PDF, with suggestions for using the materials with literacy coaches and new teachers in professional development settings.
