  9. The Instructional Playbook: The Missing Link for Translating Research into Practice

    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 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.
