Coaching Cycle – What Does It Look Like? 

Organizing coaching into cycles helps coaches create a structure for their time in a way that drills down to impact student learning. Coaching cycles have the following characteristics:

Small Group Coaching Cycles:

  • Involve a small group of teachers who are focused on a shared set of goals for student learning
  • Consist of ongoing conversations on a specific area of focus for approximately 3-6 weeks
  • Focus on a goal for student learning that comes from either formal or informal student data
  • Are led by a coach and involve a variety of professional development activities 

 

One-On-One Coaching Cycles:

  • Involve in-depth work with a teacher or pair of teachers, lasting approximately 6-9 weeks
  • Include a weekly planning session (30-50 minutes) and 1-3 times per week in the classroom for co- teaching, modeling, or observation
  • Focus on a goal for student learning that comes from either formal or informal student data
