Author: Shaw, M., Smith, W., Chessler, B., & Romero, L.
The authors explain that there have been several changes in standards for reading specialists and reading coaches, including more specialized training for addressing reading difficulties and providing guidance to teachers, both as a reading coach and in a professional development role. Reading coaches should help demonstrate lessons, communicate and collaborate with teachers, assist with lesson selection, and designing programs to motivate students. They train classroom teachers, administer and interpret assessments, present professional development workshops, assist with preparing curriculum materials, and help co-plan instruction.
