Why does coaching matter for advancing justice in teacher education?

Skillful teaching can have a major impact on student learning. Teacher educators owe it to children to provide novice teachers with high-quality professional training so that they can develop strong, equitable instructional skills and use their craft to advance teaching for social justice. To this end, teacher educators offer novice teachers intensive coaching, including delivering constructive critique, pointing out alternative approaches, and providing opportunities to try again, with support.
