This two-day workshop will prepare you to systematically use student-centered coaching to meet student learning goals in your school. On day 1, participants will learn coaching“moves”, the core practices that drive student-centered coaching.
On day 2, differentiated sessions for coaches and administrators will take a deeper dive into the coaching process from the perspective of each of these roles. The coaching strand will take the core practices for student-centered coaching into deeper implementation. The leadership strand, designed for school and district administrators, will focus on the essential moves for leading a coaching effort. While we encourage principals and coaches to attend together, it is not necessary.
The registration fee includes lunch on both days as well as a copy of a book of your choice: either Student-Centered Coaching: The Moves or Leading Student-Centered Coaching: Building Principal and Coach Partnerships.
