You will see four different types of coach and teacher conferences:
  • A conference to examine fluency data and discuss fluency strategies
  • A conference to plan an entire unit of lessons about inferring
  • A post-observation conference about a vocabulary lesson
  • A conference to co-plan a writing lesson
You will also see two classroom lessons:
  • A writing lesson modeled by a coach
  • A writing lesson co-taught by a coach and a teacher

Conferencing, discussing assessments, modeling, and observation of the teacher by the coach are the main activities shown in The Literacy Coaching Series because research results indicate that these four activities are significant predictors of student reading achievement.
