$39.95 Qty: 

An essential coaching guidebook to help you provide effective support to families and other professionals and enhance developmental outcomes for all young children

Evidence-based and highly effective, coaching is a way to help support other professionals and families as you enhance existing knowledge, develop new skills, and promote healthy development of young children. This hands-on guide shows you how to conduct skillful coaching in any setting—home, school, or community.

An expanded, more practical follow-up to the groundbreaking Coaching Families and Colleagues in Early Childhood, this guidebook walks you step by step through the coaching process and shows explicitly what best practices look like. Developed by the foremost authorities on coaching and informed by the authors' staff development and technical assistance activities with other professionals, this book directly addresses the real-world challenges of coaching and gives you concrete guidance on successful strategies and interactions. This book will help you

  • Master the five characteristics of coaching practices—observation, action, reflection, feedback, and joint planning
  • See exactly how to conduct a positive coaching session, with transcripts of successful coaching in action
  • Learn about the qualities of effective coaches, including openness to experiences, adaptability, empathy, and honesty
  • Adjust coaching techniques to meet the specific needs of early childhood educators, parents, and caregivers
  • Incorporate coaching into professional development programs to ensure immediate use of the latest best practices
  • Understand how coaching differs from other collaborative models, such as consultation, direct teaching, and counseling
  • Discover cutting-edge early childhood research that demonstrates the effectiveness of a coaching approach
  • To keep your skills sharp and ensure adherence to best coaching practices, you will get easy-to-use, reproducible tools to implement coaching consistently and effectively. You will also have samples so you can see how to use the tools to evaluate and improve your interactions. These practical forms and tools include:

  • Coaching Practices Rating Scale—determines how well a practitioner is using coaching practices with families or colleagues
  • Coaching Log—helps you record and critically analyze a coaching conversation
  • Coaching Plan—used to develop the initial coaching plan and the action plans forachieving desired outcomes
