Get Better Faster: A 90-Day Plan for Coaching New Teachers

Availability: Ready to download

“Make sure your students follow your instructions.” That sounds like a straightforward instruction, but in fact, it’s fairly abstract. What does a teacher actually have to do to make sure students are following? Even the leader delivering this direction may not know, and the first-year teacher almost certainly doesn’t. The vast majority of teachers are only observed one or “Make sure your students follow your instructions.” That sounds like a straightforward instruction, but in fact, it’s fairly abstract. What does a teacher actually have to do to make sure students are following? Even the leader delivering this direction may not know, and the first-year teacher almost certainly doesn’t. The vast majority of teachers are only observed one or two times per year on average—and even among those who are observed, scarcely any are given feedback as to how they could improve. The bottom line is clear: teachers do not need to be evaluated so much as they need to be developed and coached. In Get Better Faster: A 90-Day Plan for Coaching New Teachers, Paul Bambrick-Santoyo shares instructive tools of how school leaders can effectively guide new teachers to success. Over the course of the book, we break down the most critical actions leaders and teachers must enact to achieve exemplary results. Designed for coaches as well as beginning teachers, Get Better Faster is an integral coaching tool for any school leader eager to help their teachers succeed. It’s the book’s focus on the actionable—the practice-able—that drives effective coaching. By practicing the concrete actions and micro-skills listed here, teachers will markedly improve their ability to lead a class, producing a steady chain reaction of future teaching success. Though focused heavily on the first 90 days of teacher development, it’s possible to implement this work at any time. New and old teachers alike can benefit from the guidance of Get Better Faster and close their existing instructional gaps. Packed with practical training tools, including agendas, presentation slides, a coach’s guide, handouts, planning templates, and 35 video clips of real teachers at work, Get Better Faster will teach you: The core principles of coaching: Go Granular, Make Feedback More Frequent,  Top action steps to launch a teacher’s development in an easy-to-read scope and sequence guide The four phases of skill building: Phase 1 (Pre-Teaching): Dress Rehearsal Phase 2: Instant Immersion Phase 3: Getting into Gear Phase 4: The Power of Discourse

    I guess I'd say 4.5 stars, because the structure of the book was a bit awkward to get used to. That said, even though it's about coaching new teachers (and it does a great job teaching how to coach new teachers), it emphasizes practice and what a teacher should look for in his/her classroom and how to up the rigor. I plan to re-read it piece by piece and work on a new concept every week until it's mastered. BTW, watching the DVD is REQUIRED, otherwise nothing in this book will stick.

    The best book for coaching new teachers that I am aware of. If you are an administrator and you are looking for a prioritized list of which items to coach new teachers on first, this book is for you.

    If you are coaching new teachers in any capacity, you NEED this book! It was a game changer for me in the first week I started using it. My only wish is that I'd had it sooner!

    THE book to help you mentor other teachers and help them improve their teaching. Read alongside Teach Like A Champion.

    Good advice. I like how it gives a concrete plan, hopefully it will improve my leadership skills this year...

    I struggle with the Teach Like a Champion books - no one hand, large chunks are soulless and based on compliance, and on the other hand there are several really good strategies that you can pick and choose from. My advice? Cherry-pick the strategies that work for you.

    So much learned from this book. I am a bit overwhelmed by the information I took in. But, one thing that is stuck in my head and my heart is that we need to strive for perfection. Although, no one will ever be perfect, if we chase perfection, then we will catch excellence. So much learned...
