What does coaching look like?

Initial Conversation:

  • Building rapport
  • Finding the right starting point that is driven by your students’ needs
  • Planning for the focus of the coaching session

Coaching Session:

  • Teacher leads lesson
  • Coach takes notes that are focused on the goal from the initial conversation (all notes taken from lesson will be left with you)

Reflective Conversation:

  • Teacher brings notes from the coaching session
  • Collaborative discussion on the focus of the coaching session
  • A plan for the next step is created
