Coaching moves beyond the gym: Successful site-based coaching offers lessons

author: Ruth Galm, George S. Perry Jr.
description: "The word "coach" in school used to mean only the person who taught gym class. Today, dozens of teacher leaders who coach adults as on-site staff developers are at work in three districts that are part of a program launched in 1994 by the Edna McConnell Clark Foundation. The program, aimed at helping districts improve middle school achievement, has successfully used school-based staff developers to improve both teacher and student learning."
