Dr. Jim Knight & The Instructional Coaching Group

The Instructional Coaching Group (ICG), led by Jim Knight and his colleagues, has been studying instructional coaching for more than two decades. The goal of that research and of the broader work of ICG is that every student receives excellent instruction every day in every class. Our research has helped us identify several factors that are essential for developing and sustaining a great coaching program.

We help people in organizations learn and implement these factors, habits, and strategies through workshops, coaching, consulting, and other forms or support.

Jim Knight has spent more than a decade studying instructional coaching and has written several books and articles on the topic. He has directed several research projects, including Pathways to Success, a comprehensive, districtwide school reform project in the Topeka, Kansas, School District.
