Abstract

This study presents supporting correlational evidence of inter-rater reliability and validity for a new scale called Critical Stance, which translates critical pedagogy into measurable teacher actions for instructional coaching. Then using a quasi-experimental design (N = 36), this study examines the effects of an instructional coaching model called the Six Standards, defined by Critical Stance and five other sociocultural principles of learning. Coached teachers demonstrated statistically significant growth in use of the Six Standards in comparison to a control group. Critical Stance, however, was the most difficult standard for teachers to implement. Implications for increasing teacher use of critical pedagogy are addressed.
