Stix, Andi and Frank Hrbek.
Assn/Supervision & Curric. Dev
Applying what works in sports and corporate coaching, Stix and Hrbek describe the use of coaching strategies in the classroom, first addressing the environment, then particular techniques. These utilize discussion, deductive reasoning, drama and art integration, and project-based learning. The authors detail how to help students improve their performance, build confidence in taking risks, and create a trusting environment. Collaboration, hands-on learning, assessment, listening and questioning skills, problem solving, and individual coaching is discussed, as is the administrator’s role. Stix is an educational consultant, coach, and speaker. Hrbek has been a middle school teacher for almost 40 years.
