Establishing an effective literacy coaching framework at the secondary level to promote a culture of adult learning
The research question explored asks how can an effective literacy coaching framework be established at the secondary level to promote a culture of adult learning? The motivating factor for this work was to determine what key elements are necessary for a secondary literacy coach to be successful in providing ongoing professional development. This capstone draws upon current research in the area of literacy coaching and includes authors such as Casey, Toll, Vogt and Shearer, and Walpole and McKenna. In addition to the coach's responsibilities, the vital roles of teachers and school administrators are highlighted. Based on this research, the author developed and implemented a framework for job-embedded literacy coach support that was completed with two teachers. The results of this collaborative work revealed the effectiveness of a coaching cycle in sustained, short bursts.
