ABSTRACT
Reviewed in this chapter are six recent studies, three elementary and three secondary, that acquaint readers with emerging studies on literacy coaching. These specific studies are not part of the proceedings from the First National Literacy Coaching Summit, but they illustrate ways in which the field is developing. This growing body of research has allowed NCTE and IRA to advocate for job-embedded professional development and implementation of coaches as part of Literacy Education for All, Results for the Nation (LEARN) Act (H.B. 4037). If LEARN does not pass through Congress separately, NCTE and IRA hope that it will become part of the reauthorization of the Elementary Secondary Education Act (ESEA), formerly known as No Child Left Behind (NCLB).
