Critical Friends: The Benefits of Instructional Coaches

Critical Friends: The Benefits of Instructional Coaches | Coaching | Scoop.it

 

Instructional coaches seem to be a new phenomenon in schools. Their job is to help educators become better teachers. They observe teachers teaching, go over instructional data, and model good teaching practices. As much as this may be new for schools, the core of instructional coaching has been around for a long time.

Mary Perfitt-Nelson's curator insight, March 21, 2013 4:43 PM

"Knights says instructional coaches employ the following seven practices:
• Enrolls the teacher - they conduct one-to-one interviews with each teacher prior to the experience. 
• Engages in collaborative planning - The coach meets with the collaborating teacher to discuss how a new teaching practice can be implemented effectively. 
• Models the lesson- The coach must model the lesson in the collaborating teacher's classroom while the teacher observes. 
• Teacher-directed post conference - Both parties must meet to discuss what the teacher observed the coach doing while modeling the lesson. 
• Coach observes the lesson- It's the teacher's turn to teach the lesson. 
• Exploring data together - The coach and teacher discuss the data gathered during mutual observations. 
• Providing continued support - This is a continuous relationship that needs to be fostered over the year."


I am eager to keep practicing effective coaching.  Fidelity is an on-going issue.
