Instructional Coaching

Dr. Nathan Lang-Raad

In some respects the instructional coaching role is still being defined. Any ambiguity can lead to coaches focusing on everything else but coaching. To ensure this doesn’t happen coaches must clearly define roles, develop a shared vision for coaching amongst staff, identify SMART goals aligned to school initiatives, and create a project calendar that clearly articulates a daily/weekly schedule for the coach. In this workshop, we will discover tools that will help coaches prioritize their role and organize their day. We will create a framework that explicitly states how the coach supports teachers and the goals of the academy. We will practice using tools to keep the coach focused on utilizing effective coaching practices and explore strategies for effective facilitation of academy team meetings and PLCs.
