    • Adults in schools talk about the practice of teaching and learning frequently.
    • They work on the curriculum together by planning, designing, researching, and evaluating it.
    • They observe each other teaching and administrating.

      • Time to read (15 min)
      • Understanding different perspectives (45 min)
      • Written Reflection (15 min)
    • Number off in threes
      • 1 = Gina 2 = Pat 3 = Maureen
    • Move to “expert” groups to consider questions for your character
    • Divide into smaller groups
    • Appoint a recorder
    • Use the questions to try to understand the perspective of your character – record your analysis to share with the whole group.
    Understanding Perspectives
  • Guiding Questions: Gina’s Perspective
    • How would Gina explain her coaching role to another teacher? Cite the evidence from the case on which you base your answer.
    • What adjectives would you use to describe Gina’s approach to her role as coach to Pat?
    • What seems to be most challenging about the coaching role for Gina?
  • Guiding Questions: Pat’s Perspective
    • What does Pat believe Gina’s role as her coach to be? What evidence illustrates these beliefs?
    • What adjectives would you use to describe Pat’s view of being coached by Gina?
    • What are Pat’s concerns about the coaching relationship?
  • Guiding Questions: Maureen’s Perspective
    • Put yourself in Maureen’s place and look at the coaching relationship between Gina and Pat. What are Maureen’s beliefs about the coaching relationship? What evidence of those beliefs do you find in the text?
    • Final Reflection: Consider at least one of the first three questions below and then respond to the final question.
    • In this situation, imagine that you are Gina. What would you be thinking or feeling about your coaching relationship with Pat? What would your intention or goal be in coaching Pat?
    • Has a colleague ever coached you? What did that colleague say to you? What was his or her intention? How did that feel to you?
    • Reflect on an experience in which you acted as a coach or imagine a situation in which you could possibly be a coach. Describe that situation. What did (would) you do as a coach?
    • Look back over your response(s). How would you characterize your own beliefs and expectations about coaching a colleague?
