The meeting was focused on reviewing the coaching work done during the year.

Coaches began by using the Text Rendering Protocol to read and discuss sections of the book Taking Action on Adolescent Literacy (by Irvin, Meltzer and Dukes) that describe vignettes of what a “literacy school” looks like.

Coaches were then randomly grouped and paired in order to interview each other about their effective coaching experiences using the Appreciative Inquiry Protocol (see attached). Interview partners then shared with their tablemates the highlights of the interview. Table facilitators scribed common themes that were found in the effective coaching experiences.
