Teachers helping teacherswith outstanding results for your school and district!

Even for experienced teachers, today’s educational reform initiatives require more than an in-service day. Based on Jim Knight’s best-selling book, Instructional Coaching, this eCourse shows how mentorship can become part of school culture, and improve both teaching practice and school-wide academic performance.

You’ll see best practices for instructional coaching in action, and develop your own valuable coaching skills. After completing the 13-module course, you’ll be fully prepared to coach others, and you’ll have gained new leadership insights for your school or district’s coaching program. In this course you’ll learn:

  • All the essential skills that instructional coaches need, with numerous video case studies of coaching situations
  • How to self-evaluate your current skill level of instructional coaching and identify areas for improvement
  • How to establish trust and lasting partnerships with teachers being coached
  • Strategies for strengthening classroom teaching through the mentorship process
  • How reflective conversations can promote positive changes in performance

With thoughtful guidance from a notable trainer of teachers, accompanied by a wealth of learning materials, you’ll be ready for future coaching opportunities.

This course may be taken by individuals as a self-paced, independent study, or by groups of educators as part of a school or district cohort.

"I was unable to attend the face-to-face course through our district and had to complete the online course as a substitution. I am always hesitant to do online learning, but the video modules, book readings, and reflection journals were so helpful! I really learned a lot and loved the format of this course"

Tori Mills, ESL Consulting Teacher
Sioux City Community Schools

"The Instructional Coaching course was useful to me in my first year of Instructional Coaching at the high school where I teach. The school did not provide any guidance except bi-monthly meetings, so I feel I received all my guidance from the course. I love the videos showing actual coaching going on because it helped me envision my own coaching."

Patricia Payne, Instructional Coach
Evanston Township District 202

"Jim Knight's book stands alone but this course helps to dig much deeper into instructional coaching and its many facets."
