Elish-Piper and L'Allier's book The Common Core Coaching Book: Strategies to Help Teachers Address the K-5 ELA Standards provides informative and critical literacy coaching tools that support teachers in planning and implementing instruction aligned with the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). This series was created with teachers' questions in mind to ensure that the instructional examples provided throughout are not only practical and easy to implement, but also have been actually studied and refined within authentic classroom settings. The text is divided into five main sections that walk the reader through coaching toward the Common Core, facilitating individual, small-group and large-group settings, and provides a final section that includes profiles of highly effective literacy coaches.
