Reviews on Amazon
Everyone needs coaching
9 Aug 2014
Every principal, every teacher and every student needs coaching, because it is an underlying mechanism in good quality teaching-learning interaction. Martin Richards walks the reader through six important steps in the coaching approach to education, and by doing that he creates an excellent toolbox for any teacher, anywhere, following any given curriculum. This book belongs to the bookshelf of a teacher who wishes for students to become life-long learners, not just pass the next test.

It's rare to find an author utilize so many perspectives in a body of work. Martin Richards uses his experience as a parent, teacher, coach and visionary to address the very core of society- youth and education. With insight and practicality, Richards offers tools, examples and encouragement for teachers, leaders, coaches, parents, as well as societal influencers with an eye on the impact of education on all of us.
