This toolkit supports content coaching in the CS classroom. A coaching relationship is built on trust and shared expertise and is always consultative and never evaluative. The coaching cycle, as defined by West and Cameron, includes three components: co-planning, co-teaching, and reflection and feedback. In addition to supporting this coaching cycle, the cards in the CS Coaching section include Coaching Lenses, which give coaches an overall framework for guiding discussions, and Coaching Practices, which offers concrete, detailed strategies on working with teachers to achieve their goals.
