This action research looks at how literacy coaches can individualize instruction for both teachers and students. Educational theories support the importance of individualized instruction for students and previous research re-enforces the importance of individualized instruction in literacy coaching. This study involved interviewing practicing literacy coaches and literacy coaching candidates as well as first-hand experiences with literacy coaching. The findings show that the three primary ways that literacy coaches can individualize instruction is by focusing on student needs through working with students, teachers, and the school. Literacy coaches need to focus on the needs of students through working directly with classroom teachers while being aware of the needs of teachers as well.
