In schools, every day is ‘game day'. Every day, teachers need the best resources and forms of support because students deserve the best we as educators can offer. An instructional playbook aims to serve as that kind of support: a tool that coaches can use to help teachers match specific learning goals with the right research-based instructional strategies.

Coaches have enormous potential to help teachers learn and implement new teaching practices, but coaches will only be effective if they deeply understand the strategies they describe and their explanations are clear. The instructional playbook: The missing link for translating research into practice addresses both issues head on and offers a simple and clear explanation of how to create a playbook uniquely designed to meet teachers’ instructional needs.

The idea of an instructional playbook has caught fire since Jim Knight described it in The impact cycle (2017). This book helps instructional coaches create playbooks that produce a common language about high-impact teaching strategies, deepen everyone’s understanding of what instructional coaches do, and, most important, support teachers and students in classrooms.
