Instructional coaching practices improves the quality of teaching and instructional practices. Teacher-centered coaching is a coaching strategy that is focused on teacher actions in the classroom, versus student-centered coaching, which focuses on looking closely at student-level data.
Quality of teaching will improve through rigorous coaching and mentoring, in turn, resulting in increased teacher effectiveness and therefore, improved student outcomes.
