Does your school have a culture of feedback?

The Educator Effectiveness model provides growth opportunities for teachers, principals and other valued staff in our school districts today. This model requires principals, supervisors, and coaches to be highly effective at providing feedback.  

Whether your school has instructional coaches or you’re trying to build teacher leadership capacity, all staff desire and deserve coaching and feedback aligned to high expectations, standards, and research-based effective instructional practices. In this professional learning opportunity, participants will further develop the capacity to provide coaching and feedback for reflection.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Identify and explicitly address the impact of instructional practice on student engagement and achievement through coaching conversations.
  2. Demonstrate  knowledge of questioning techniques that generate educator reflection on practice and impact.
  3. Examine protocols for coaching conversations and determine how and when to use them effectively. 
  4. Demonstrate knowledge of the conditions required for successfully engaging in a crucial conversation.

Leading Objectives: 

Participants, through observation and feedback will meet two or more of the following key practice outcomes:

  1. Apply questioning techniques and coaching strategies that lead to educator reflection on practice and impact. 
  2. Demonstrate effectiveness in delivering observation feedback using a balanced analysis approach (claim, evidence, impact). 
  3. Provide video evidence of application of coaching skills learned.
