The Lasting Impact of Instructional Coaching

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.”

Learn more about cause-effect coaching.  If it doesn't last, it's just a distraction.

Very interesting, a MUST read...

Teaching Presentation Skills with Ignite

I know that, in my project-based learning classroom, students did presentations all the time for a variety of purposes. One of the key components of a PBL project is the 21st-century skill of present

Love this.  "Ignite is a specific genre of presentation. An Ignite presenter only has five minutes to speak about the topic, and 20 slides to do so. Every 15 seconds, slides are moved along automatically. The overall purpose of an Ignite session is to empower and excite the audience around a specific subject matter, idea or topic. Ignite is used at conferences all around the world, at EdCamps, and even within professional organizations and businesses."


Perfect way to engage.  Short, sweet and to the point!

What a nice way to use PowerPoint and not read the slides one at a time!

Mary Perfitt-Nelson's curator insight, February 4, 2013 6:27 AM

My Voice provides educators with a powerful tool for understanding both what motivates and inspires students to achieve, and how well students believe their school is meeting those objectives. My Voice is a powerful tool for initiating innovative, meaningful school reform.  

 

Global summary:  

 

Student-teacher relationships, which can be powerful contributors to student engagement
and academic success, are in need of improvement; moreover, perceptions of studentteacher relationships appear to weaken, rather than strengthen, through the middle school
and into the high school years.
– At all levels of secondary education, students need to be more engaged—and trends across
the grade levels suggest this problem gets worse, not better, the longer students are in
school; and
– While learning in school in general is perceived as important, it is not perceived as
particularly relevant to many students’ lives, and this perceived relevance generally declines
as students progress through school.

 

This document needs to be read and read well for those looking to change the culture of their building.

I think most of us are a nice and nifty package of all.  Preferences vary, depending on many factors. 

Ruth Garner's curator insight, January 5, 2013 6:35 AM

It is always good to revisit learning styles in order to reflect on whether or not we are giving the best opportunities for learning online.
