This article reports on a cross-case analysis using Miles and Huberman's framework to examine and describe issues related to teacher engagement and disengagement with receiving "coaching," or expert consultation, on effective teaching strategies. Results were gleaned from two research studies that implemented a coaching model and a series of earlier data analyses. The focus of the current analysis was to identify factors that led to high levels of impact on teaching as well as high levels of engagement on the part of general education teachers working with special educators.
