Workshop

  • Student-Centered Coaching: In this seminar, participants will be introduced to the theories and practices for student-centered coaching, a model for coaching that is less about fixing teachers and more about student learning. Particular emphasis will be placed on how student-centered coaching supports the implementation of the Standards for College and Career Readiness across grades K-12.

    Attendees will:

    • Understand the core practices for student-centered coaching
    • Compare student-centered coaching with other models for coaching
    • Support teachers to set measurable goals for student learning
    • Unpack the Standards for College and Career Readiness as an integral part of the coaching cycle
    • Document the impact of a coaching cycle from beginning to end
    • Establish a plan for collaboration between the coach and school leader
