"Captures the sense of urgency, excitement and challenge all teachers face as they prepare students for a future that is already here.

"This book trains the teacher to meet two of his chief problems: (1) How to make use of the instinctive tendencies of the child to give him a well-rounded education; (2) How to minimize the effects of all tendencies that obstruct correct learning. This book organizes, describes, and evaluates modern trends in education in the light of psychology and of standards, gives special emphasis to the objectives of education, and studies the specific practices by which these objectives are reached. It presents concretely the problems faced by the teacher, and helps the latter to solve these problems. In general, it covers: (1) A survey of the backgrounds of education as generally accepted; and (2) An exposition and analysis of current ways of teaching. The book clarifies the relation between theory and practice by means of a concrete exposition of the backgrounds of teaching. It shows the relationship among the various teaching techniques, and presents a critique of their respective values"--Book. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2014 APA, all rights reserved).
Written by a teacher and coach, this book is filled with stories and tools that enable teachers to use a coaching approach in the classroom. We can rely on the fact that living and working conditions in the world change, have always changed and will continue to change, and probably change faster, and faster. Education is the way communities have developed for preparing the next generation for their living and working lives, learning from what's been done before. The Education System is continuously looking for the best ways to get the best results for ourselves, now and in the future. Any well-functioning system uses feedback to learn from its own results. Coaching (the art of questioning) is an empowering way to learn from results in order to deal with continuous and accelerating change. Coaching moves the communication focus from "Tell" to "Ask." A coaching approach is a natural addition to a teacher's or headteachers' skillset.
