This step-by-step guide is for teachers interested in collaborating with their peers to promote mutual professional development and share in the satisfactions of the profession. It integrates the
principles of self-directed learning and critical reflection into a system in which teachers alternate in serving as coaches to one another. The book explains how to select professional development goals, how to reach
those goals, and how to document growth. It details several strategies for effective face-to-face coaching. It also addresses the personal aspects of collaboration, including how to connect with a suitable peer, how to
support one another, and how to end a collaborative relationship productively.
