If we hope to interrupt educational inequities and create schools in which every child thrives, we must open our hearts to purposeful conversation and hone our skills to make those conversations effective. With characteristic honesty and wisdom, Elena Aguilar inspires us to commit to transforming our classrooms, lays bare the hidden obstacles to equity, and helps us see how to overcome these obstacles, one conversation at a time.
Coaching for Equity is packed with the resources necessary to implement transformational coaching in any organization. In addition to an updated coaching framework and corresponding rubrics, a comprehensive set of coaching tools puts success in every coach's hands. Extensive personal narratives demonstrate what coaching for equity looks like and help us see how we can make every conversation count toward building a more just and equitable world.
Coaching for Equity covers critical topics in the larger conversation about racial equity and helps listeners develop the knowledge, dispositions, and skills to be able to: talk productively about race; build trust to support vulnerability; unpack mental models and change someone's mind; observe classrooms and collect data to support equitable outcomes; inspire others and deepen commitment; and evaluate and celebrate growth.

Fantastic resource; terrible narration
WOW: wanted to brush up on the content of this amazing coaching resource, so I got the audio book. I nearly returned it the same day--the reader is awkward and stilted, to the point that at times I thought the narration was done via computer animation. I truly hope no one gets turned off Elena Aguilar's life changing work because of the narrator's delivery.
The content of the text is powerful, important, and incredibly timely, and/but it's so full of resources I'd recommend the actual text as a first option (however, Aguilar's website (Brightmorning.com) offers a wealth of free supports if you don't have a hard copy). I'm a huge fan of all her books and her whole approach.
