Quality Teaching in a Culture of Coaching is an exemplary resource for any school district whose goal is to establish a common language that can be used by mentors, administrators and coaches. Steve Barkley provides practical coaching models that are grounded in research, and he provides real examples that can be adapted to any school. The Career in Teaching Program of the Rochester City School District has included this book as a "must read" by all mentors in the program. - Marie Costanza, director, Career in Teaching Program, Rochester, New York

This book is a must for any educator striving to make positive changes in student achievement! Steve Barkley provides the best practical approaches for educators to view student behaviors as they relate to the strategies teachers are implementing in the classroom.

As the consummate practitioner he is, Stephen Barkley has worked tirelessly for twenty-five years, long before it became popular, to educate so many others about the immense power of teachers coaching their peers so that all students learn. His accessible language, his practical and immediately useful strategies, and his inspiring stories make this book the single most important resource for any school or school system caring about their 'culture' of coaching. - Denny Berry, director, Cluster VI, Fairfax County Public Schools, Virginia

Stephen Barkley's book on coaching was one of the first I read when we were developing our instructional coaching approach, and it remains one of my favorites. Anyone interested in improving instruction will find a lot of useful information here. - Jim Knight, director, Kansas Coaching Project, The University of Kansas Center for Research on Learning

Barkley, a former classroom teacher who teaches educators and administrators in the US and internationally about effective teaching, describes the importance and use of coaching in teaching.

This edition has been updated to include examples, opportunities to practice specific skills, a clearly defined coaching process, applications for different school professionals, and up-to-date anecdotes and quotes. - Book News, Inc.
