Publisher's Summary

Identify . . . Learn . . . Improve

When it comes to improving practice, few professional texts can rival the impact felt by Jim Knight’s Instructional Coaching. For hundreds of thousands of educators, Jim bridged the long-standing divide between staff room and classroom offering up a much a more collaborative, respectful, and efficient PD model for achieving instructional excellence.

Now, one decade of research and hundreds of in-services later, Jim takes that work a significant step further with The Impact Cycle , an all-new instructional coaching cycle to help teachers and, in turn, their students improve in clear, measurable ways. 

Quintessential Jim, The Impact Cycle comes loaded with every possible tool to help you reach your coaching goals, starting with a comprehensive program, robust checklists, and a model instructional playbook. Quickly, you’ll learn how to: 

  • Interact and dialogue with teachers as partners
  • Guide teachers to identify emotionally compelling, measurable, and student-focused goals
  • Set coaching goals, plan strategies, and monitor progress for optimal impact
  • Use documentary-style video and text-based case studies as models to promote maximum teacher clarity and proactive problem solving
  • Streamline teacher enrollment, data collection, and deep listening

Jim writes, “When we grow, improve, and learn, when we strive to become a better version of ourselves, we tap into something deep in ourselves that craves that kind of growth.” Listen to The Impact Cycle, and soon you’ll discover how you can continually refine your practice to help teachers and students realize their fullest potential.

Optimus Prime sounds better

I heard great things about the book and wanted an audio version. the reader sounds like a robot and I could not listen to more than 2 minutes of the book. 😫 I guess I will download the ebook.

Great book, great information, awful reading

Great information but the reader is super stilted and hard to listen to. Worse than a computer reading it.

Mixed

A challenging listen on account of the voice. The author voice certainly doesn’t come through. That being said, the content is useful. There are a whole host of links and references. Recommend checking out the authors website.

Great listen!

A great listen for any leader in education or anyone that has a role in coaching teachers. Lots of practical strategies and ideas. The companion website is also a fantastic resource.

The performance, however, was terrible. The worst audiobook I have listened too. It sounded like a recording in a text to speech device. I got used to it in the end thankfully. Lucky the content was good.

Excellent content, terrible narration

This is an excellent teacher resource for all teachers interested in improving their own practice. However, the narration is terrible. You get used to it but it would be so much better if read differently.
