Coaching in Communities

Pursuing Justice, Teacher Learning, and Transformation
Melissa Mosley Wetzel, Erica Holyoke, Kerry H. Alexander, Heather Dunham, and Claire Collins

A revolutionary framework for preservice teacher learning centered on justice-focused coaching that encourages culturally responsive practice and disrupts systems of oppression.

In Coaching in Communities, researcher Melissa Mosley Wetzel, along with her coauthors, distills the lessons of an eight-year study into a transformative educator training model, Coaching with CARE (an acronym for critical and content-focused, appreciative, reflective, and experiential). She demonstrates how effective, contextual teacher training can be a cornerstone of educational justice, which occurs when all learners are supported to be successful in school and when schools expand notions of success to include diverse ways of life and learning.

Humanizing Professional Development for Educators
Kira J. Baker-Doyle, Foreword by Alan J. Daly

This practical and forward-focused book presents a framework that uses social infrastructure to produce effective and inclusive professional development options in education. 

Although technology has increased our capacity for social networking both in the digital space and face-to-face, Kira J. Baker-Doyle contends that most professional development opportunities for educators are still fundamentally asocial. She calls for the adoption of humanizing network practices to create meaningful continuing education experiences that leverage the collective knowledge, expertise, and social capital of educators to spark educational change.

Dilemmas of Educational Ethics

Cases and Commentaries
Edited by Meira Levinson and Jacob Fay

Educators and policy makers confront challenging questions of ethics, justice, and equity on a regular basis. Should teachers retain a struggling student if it means she will most certainly drop out? Should an assignment plan favor middle-class families if it means strengthening the school system for all? These everyday dilemmas are both utterly ordinary and immensely challenging, yet there are few opportunities and resources to help educators think through the ethical issues at stake.
