In the decade since the first edition of The Literacy Coachs Survival Guide, education has changed considerably. Reading First and No Child Left Behind have faded, while Race to the Top, the Common Core State Standards, PARCC and Smarter Balanced assessments, and Response to Intervention have become focal points. Although the fundamentals of literacy coaching remain the same, coaching has broadened in scope, and Cathy Toll has refined her own approach with all the changes in education at the forefront, combined with her vast experience with thousands of coaches across the world. This heavily revised and updated edition of Tolls go-to handbook reflects all of these changes and guides new and experienced literacy coaches through important topics, such as the following: Effecting change Working with teacher partners individually and in teams Communicating well in coaching conversations Dealing with difficult situations Coaching around special initiatives, such as the CCSS and RTI

My bible for coaching motivation and reaffirmation...If you are going into a literacy coaching position, READ THIS FIRST! There is not one question left unanswered by Toll. She gives you confidence in spades. I love this book and won't be without it ever again.

Eta
great overview of the coach's role and very practical steps to being successful.
Cathy outlines the role of a literacy coach in a way that is contrary to my recent experience and public perceptions of coaches---and in many ways is quite refreshing! She suggests that the work of a coach is to assist in "problem finding and problem solving." Her template for coaching conversations are helpful, as are her prompts for effective communication. I have just accepted an offer to become a literacy coach and a, looking forward to using some of these strategies.
