Course Description

Day 1: Empower yourself as a facilitator of change in your respective learning communities. Develop a sense of urgency as you learn steps to connect growth mindset and dynamic participation in coaching cycles as foundational principles for continuous school improvement. This session is designed to engage participants in comparative analysis of adult- to student-level data in order to make decisions regarding next steps for the provision of coaching supports. Through the act of differentiating those supports to meet specific needs, participants will begin to understand the necessity for personalized learning in the capacity-building process for adult learners.

Viewing the coaching process through the lens of adaptive practice for all maximizes opportunities for: (A) the construction of data driven action plans, (B) the employment of research-based strategies, and (C) active participation in transparent reflection. As a result of your learning, it is the aim to achieve collective results according to equity-focused outcomes with effective implementation of protocols and procedures for district-wide transformation.

Days 2-4: In order to sustain rigorous climates for learning, the appropriate instructional supports must be provided to ensure ample opportunity for professional capacity building. A comprehensive coaching process, customized to meet educator needs, is one of the best avenues for achieving desired outcomes. Coaching conversations focused on reflection, instructional diagnostics, and prescriptive planning is the Education Reform Enterprises (ERE) approach to transformation.

Utilizing an inquiry-based process rooted in collaborative conversation establishes a foundation for obtaining common goals. Shared language and understanding engages participants in work and effort aligned to a collective purpose. The coaching protocol provides a framework for questioning, thereby gaining clarity and establishing a concrete action plan for the implementation of best practices. Our target: Development of multiple levels of instructional expertise, through active coaching, which evokes high levels of achievement for all students.
