Instructional Coaching in K–12 — A Literature Review and Discussion Questions

Following an established REL West research protocol, the REL West team conducted a search for research reports and research-based resources on instructional coaching in K–12 educational settings. The literature summary is organized in three parts, for use by the ERWC Steering Committee in the process of revising their coaching approach and materials:

  • A summary of information from the research literature organized around four themes: goals of coaching; defining a coaching cycle; effective coaching practices; and structural supports for implementation of effective coaching.
  • A list of questions for the Steering Committee members to discuss internally, and with REL West, during the process of developing the Coaching Protocol.
  • The reference list, with annotations, for further information.
