Coaching for Instructional Excellence
The classroom teacher is expected to deliver highly effective, Tier 1 instructional practices such that all students learn. Yet, without job-embedded coaching, the full effect of teacher training does not reach students (Joyce & Showers, 2002). This series will enhance the knowledge, tools, skills and dispositions needed for teachers to provide peer coaching. The series is designed to support learning and skill application by coaches and classroom teachers using components of adult learning theory.
- Learn the knowledge, skills and dispositions required to provide coaching for instructional excellence
- Increase knowledge of evidence informed teaching practices and Teacher Leadership
- Increase communication and relationship development skills
- Understand the constructs of adult learning
- Gain knowledge of Implementation Science and the skills necessary to pilot coaching in their schools
This course, previously offered through SWIFT Center and NH Department of Education, is intended for teachers who have interest in developing their knowledge, skill set and dispositions to be effective coaches and teacher-leaders.
