She used a variety of mediating questions to encourage reflection for
"What other strategies could be used?" and "How could you use those strategies
in the modeling to make choices?"
"What are some of your goals?" and "What were other things
that stuck out to you?"
A mediating question to get her to reflect was "What are some thoughts (about the struggle and nervousness) about (using) the small group instruction?"

Linda only used a few mediating questions. These included, "So, what could you do to work on their responsibility?" and "What could you do as you think of future lessons?"

Costa and Garmston’s Cognitive CoachingSM model (2002) posits that
instructional coaches mediate teachers’ thought processes by: pausing (providing waittime so teachers can clearly form and articulate their thoughts, ideas, and responses),

Additionally, coaches can ask mediating questions that intentionally draw upon and
extend teachers’ states of mind (efficacy, flexibility, consciousness, craftsmanship, and interdependence).
