Instructional coaching is taking hold as a positively impactful model helping teachers develop and grow in their practice. Through targeted, thoughtful reflection teachers who are coached in the instructional coaching model grow as educators and discover new ways to more fully serve students.

This intensive, three-day institute is designed to help educators develop and expand their knowledge of instructional coaching models. Teachers and coaches in this course will define instructional coaching, learn how to build relationships that allow for productive collaboration, receive instruction and practice time with tools as well as in conversations and plan for productive coaching partnerships in the coming school year.

Through this workshop, participants will:

  • Learn about several models of coaching and use elements to craft a coaching cycle that fits their institution.
  • Examine best practices for leading productive discussions with future clients.
  • Be introduced to theories of adult learning.
  • Develop a “coaching manifesto” to guide them in their work with teachers.
  • Use tools to support growth and practice the art of coaching conversations.
