As previously discussed, an important responsibility of Design Coaches and Literacy Coordinators is to provide guidance to teachers that clarifies the instructional expectations of the America’s Choice program. In a broader sense, situative learning theories posit that opportunities to learn new practices that are embedded in teachers’ day-to-day work may provide a similar kind of clarification. Specifically, these theories hold that when teachers’ learning opportunities are embedded in or at least connected to their daily work in classrooms, teachers are more likely to become aware of what constitutes effective, practical, or appropriate instruction within their schools.

M. W. Han This preliminary evidence of the link between teachers’ interactions with instructional leaders and changed teaching practices is suggestive but far from conclusive. Because this analysis includes both America’s Choice and comparison school teachers, we cannot be sure whether this relationship holds in schools implementing America’s Choice. Additional analyses presented below probe this question in greater depth. Having established that teachers in schools that implemented America’s Choice were more likely to access instructional leaders as resources for instructional improvement, and that they were also more likely to use literacy instruction practices advocated by the program, we next sought to better understand whether there is a connection between these two results.
