Session Dates

Wednesday June 15, 2022 2:00 PM - 3:15 PM - Webinar

Coaching has become a popular model in schools to provide professional development and support to improve the instructional skills of teachers, and the academic skills and behavioral outcomes of students. Unfortunately, few teachers who are being given the role of “coach” are receiving sufficient training or support to adequately perform this challenging role. This situation is often complicated by the fact that few administrators clearly understand this new role or how to provide the essential support that coaches will need to be successful. This session for coaches AND administrators begins with the basics: The research-based rationale for coaching (WHY provide coaching?), WHO makes a good coach, and WHAT are the key tasks that help make coaching successful. The essential difference between coaching and supervision is discussed. Various models of coaching are presented along with an overview of the research-based model of Student-Focused Coaching (SFC; Hasbrouck & Michel, 2022; Hasbrouck & Denton, 2005 & Hasbrouck & Denton, 2009).
