Effective Coaching to Strengthen Instruction, T&L 2900

In this course, you will learn the fundamentals of coaching teachers in order to increase the quality of their instruction for improved student academic success. You will learn about the roles of coaches, with particular emphasis on developing the essential skills of relationships, communication, and observation. With those skills as the backbone, you will learn a coaching cycle for planning, implementation, and debriefing in the context of three different instructional supports-modeling/demonstration, co-teaching/collaboration, and observation. Once you've discovered how to plan and implement, you will learn to assess coaching as you consider its outcomes and those who are accountable for them. Finally, you will explore how to begin to foster a coaching culture at your school or in your district.
