In this greatly expanded and extensively updated edition of a
widely popular resource you see how teachers’ individual and collective
capacities for continuing self-improvement are strengthened over time through
Cognitive Coaching. You gain essential skills, protocols, guidance, research
and resources to use when implementing Cognitive Coaching principles and values
in your own school setting. 

Working toward the goals of making schools better places where
more students succeed and satisfaction in learning and teaching prevail, Costa
and Garmston let you know about their own learning, and how new research and
practice can support individuals and schools in reaching higher, more
satisfying and more holistic performance. Organised into four sections, the
book clearly and effectively presents these concepts:

  • the
    meanings of cognitive coaching

  • the
    basics of teaching excellence

  • strategies
    and tactics for engaging in coaching

  • how
    to integrate Cognitive Coaching throughout the system.

In this third edition, Costa and Garmston not only acquaint new
readers with Cognitive Coaching but also offer experienced practitioners the
benefits of recent developments, including information about advanced coaching
skills, neuroscientific applications to coaching and a clear focus on one’s
identity as a mediator.
