Topics in the EmpowerED Coaching strand support systemic coaching needs.  We use data triangulation so coaches understand their impact on effective teaching practices. Our belief is that everyone in a system needs coaching and feedback to learn.

Student Centered Lesson Study

 

Our Student-Centered Lesson Study Model supports a collaborative focus on student thinking through observation of classroom practice in real time. Lesson study provides a process that makes concrete goals for student learning by developing an actual lesson collaboratively.
Our professional learning model:

 

  • Engages professionals in the concrete tasks of teaching, assessment, and observation;

  • Is grounded in participants’ questions, inquiry, and experimentation as well as profession-wide research;

  • Is collaborative, involving a sharing of knowledge among educators.

Microteaching: Video Inspired Teaching 

Microteaching is organized practice teaching. The goal is to give instructors confidence, support, and feedback to increase teacher effectiveness by allowing them to practice a “mini-lesson” of what they plan to do with their students in front of their colleagues and friends. Microteaching has been defined as a scaled down realistic classroom training context in which teachers, both experienced and inexperienced, may acquire new teaching skills and refine old ones Why micro-­‐teaching is effective:

  • Microteaching is real teaching;

  • It lessens the complexities of normal classroom teaching in that class size, scope, and content are reduced;

  • It focuses on implementation of research based strategies;

  • It organizes controlled, structured practice sessions;

  • It allows for immediate, focused feedback and promotes reflection & feedback

Principal Coaching for Clarity

 

As an administrator placed in a coaching role, it is difficult to know if your coaching is really making a difference. Our coaching model is tied to state and national standards and is also directly connected to the school/district improvement plan. Our coaching model motivates teachers to increase their learning by giving professionals:

 

  • A choice in their learning

  • Allowing them time to master the learning and

  • Recognizing their success along the way through ongoing feedback.

 

The criterion for success is co-constructed by the site leadership team to ensure all teachers have a voice in their own learning. We use multiple measures to determine success: teacher perception data, learning walk data, student perception data, and formative and summative achievement data.
