Gianfranco D'Aversa's curator insight, January 23, 2013 10:59 AM

Cause-Effect Coaching

 

David uses a “cause-effect coaching” method.  He shows teachers what they are doing or are not doing (the cause) and how it is related to what the students are learning or not learning (the effect).

The purpose is to show the teacher that the students may not be the cause of why the students are not learning.

 

The cause-effect concept was shown in the original work on classroom management by Jacob Kounin.  He summarized his research from observing teachers and classrooms and concluded that it was “the behavior of the teacher and not the behavior of the students that resulted in student learning.”

 

David says:

 

==> “School leaders and teachers must always examine how their actions or inactions may be creating barriers or creating enhancements to learning.
