Coaches will explore their current beliefs and how those beliefs might facilitate or debilitate the relationship with a teacher.  This training will provide the coaches with knowledge, skills, and dispositions to shift teachers thinking from responding "This is how we have always done it" to new possibilities.  Coaches will acquire a vast knowledge of effective coaching skills to mediate thinking of the coachee/teacher. This will enable the coachee/teacher to think deeply about their practice to monitor and adjust as necessary.  Coaches will understand the link between effective coaching and the transformation of teacher practice.  The intended audience is: instructional coaches and literacy specialists.
