Book Overview
Coaching for Equity is a comprehensive guide for educators who are committed to creating equitable schools. It offers concrete strategies, a sequence of action steps, inspiring anecdotes, information, and resources. It is written for educators at all entry points--from those who are just starting to cultivate an awareness of equity, to those who have led for equity for many years. It is a book for teachers, teacher leaders, principals, superintendents, school boards, and anyone working in and with schools who aspires to fulfill a vision for equitable schools. Coaching for Equity will respond to the following commonly asked questions: What does equity mean? What does an equitable school look like? How can I recognize inequity? What does it look like in my classroom and school? How did we get here--to a place where there are so many inequities in schools? How do we create something different? And what would that something different be? What do I need to know in order to create equitable classrooms? What do I need to be able to do? What new awareness do I need?
Editor Reviews
From the Back Cover Your Guide to Creating Equitable Schools If we are going to interrupt educational inequities and create schools in which every child thrives, we must refine our conversation skills. Coaching for Equity offers extensive strategies for talking about race, power, and systems of oppression, strategies which lead to changes in a teacher's practice. This book is for teachers, leaders, and coaches who accept responsibility for interrupting inequities in schools and who want to build the knowledge and skills to coach for equity. Coaching for Equity contains an updated Transformational Coaching framework and the tools and rubrics that are necessary to implement this model of coaching. In addition, personal narratives demonstrate what coaching for equity looks like and help us see how we can make every conversation count towards building a more just and equitable world. This book is for every teacher, leader, coach, and educational practitioner who seeks to interrupt educational inequities. Elena shares her vulnerability and insights, embraces the power of emotions, and deepens our understanding so we can expand our skillsets--helping us to put relationship before task and keep equity at the core. -- Tamisha Williams, Dean of Adult Equity & Inclusion, Lick-Wilmerding High School Finally! Elena Aguilar's Coaching for Equity is an accessible guidebook that pushes us beyond platitudes of equity to the essential ground of creating complex learning environments that demonstrate--every day--what it takes for all children to receive the educational experiences they deserve. Coaching for Equity is for all of us who have been hungry for guidance about how to gather our people, get past our fragility, and 'journey towards justice and liberation' as we work in service to all children. -- Kimberly N. Parker, PhD, Shady Hill School and co-founder of #DisruptTexts All coaching should be about equity, but coaches need tools and maps to guide them through emotionally complex conversations about race and justice. This book provides coaches with those tools and maps. Any coach who is concerned about equity, which should be every coach, will greatly benefit from reading this book. -- Jim Knight, Senior Partner, Instructional Coaching Group
