Coaching cycles are the most impactful contact a coach can have with teachers, but they are also the activity that requires the highest level of skill. Collaboratively planning and observing lessons, and giving supportive feedback on those lessons, is the best way to improve the effectiveness of teaching and therefore student outcomes. Yet this core activity is often undermined by the myriad other demands on a coach's time.
This book addresses the issues, roadblocks, and fears faced by coaches and administrators in effectively launching and facilitating a program of coaching and takes you through the coaching cycle itself in practical, applied, and no-nonsense steps that will help you maximize its impact.
If you are a coach, a coach of coaches, or an administrator, following the suggestions in this book will help you achieve a much larger return on your coaching investment. There will be more teachers coached, increased instructional effectiveness, and ultimately increased student achievement.
Gene Tavernetti began his career in education in 1977 and has served as a coach, teacher, counselor, and administrator. He found his true passion when he began to work one to one as an instructional coach and witnessed the immediate, direct, and positive impact he could have on teachers, administrators, and ultimately student learning.

In 2006, Dr. Tavernetti co-founded Total Educational Systems Support (TESS). Since its founding, TESS, and Gene, have trained and coached thousands of educators in teacher directed instruction emphasizing strategies for engagement, language development, and higher order thinking. He is also the author of Teach FAST: Focused Adaptable Structured Teaching, a lesson framework based on a synthesis of cognitive science and his nearly 20 years of experience training and coaching teachers.

Gene continues to work with selected districts training teachers, coaches, and administrators in reality-based effective instruction.
