One to Grow On/Every Teacher a Coach

As a follow up to my previous post, I wanted to share an article I found titled One to Grow On/Every Teacher a Coach. It states, “Understanding the attributes of effective athletic coaches provides insight into the nature of good teachers and good teaching.” Coaches that get results encourage hard work, perseverance, risk taking, determination, and a love of the sport, which as we know, can also be applied to the art of effective teaching. The article describes four traits that good coaches demonstrate: 

1. Great Coaches Know Their Sport

2. Great Coaches Develop Players’ Skill

3. Great Coaches Are Great Motivators

4. Great Coaches Are Team Builders

The similarities noted between effective coaches and teachers is intriguing and a worthwhile read for future and current educational leaders.
