Coaching Cycle

  1. Needs analysis - first identifying leadership needs and goals.

  2. Observation and Data Collection - of teaching and learning practices, teacher strengths and growth areas and student engagement levels.

  3. Collaborative Goal Setting - Setting goals with leadership and aligning to school's vision and setting attainable goals (short-term and long-term) with teachers. 

  4. Feedback - on teacher observations with recommendations and strategies to improve instruction.

  5. Reflection - on coach feedback and recommendations. 

  6. Application - of principles, strategies and recommendations discussed in coaching sessions.

 

Instructional coaching practices improves the quality of teaching and instructional practices. Teacher-centered coaching is a coaching strategy that is focused on teacher actions in the classroom, versus student-centered coaching, which focuses on looking closely at student-level data.

 

Quality of teaching will improve through rigorous coaching and mentoring, in turn, resulting in increased teacher effectiveness and therefore, improved student outcomes.

 

After a thorough needs analysis and initial meeting with administration, goals will be established and careful selection of high needs areas will be focused upon for the duration of the coaching cycle.
