Student-centered coaching is an evidence-based instructional coaching model that shifts the focus from ‘fixing’ teachers to collaborating with them to design instruction that targets student outcomes. Shifting coaching toward a data-driven approach increases the efficacy of teachers, coaches, and most importantly our students.
Participants will learn concrete strategies for implementing a coaching model that is grounded in student evidence. This will include an introduction to the core practices for student-centered coaching. We will also explore how principals and district leaders can take an active role in leading a coaching effort.
This conference is recommended for K-12 instructional coaches in any area of specialization, principals, and district leaders. Breakout sessions will be offered in order to differentiate by levels of experience, roles, and needs.
