"Supporting teachers in their implementation of instructional approaches through coaching or mentoring can yield important benefits for children. Coaching or mentoring that provides support to the teacher on how to implement content-rich and engaging curricula show substantial promise in helping to ensure that such instruction is being provided. Such coaching or mentoring involves modeling positive instructional approaches and providing feedback on the teacher's implementation in a way that sets goals but is also supportive. This can occur either directly in the classroom or through web-based exchange of video clips." (October, 2013)
