Instructional Leadership Coaching: Developing a Community of Practice

  • practice a variety of strategies that can be used to develop relationships with all stakeholders
  • assess teaching from videos and examine the critical components of instructional planning and delivery
  • evaluate student work for alignment with state standards, assessments, and instructional activities
  • pose coaching problems and/or dilemmas that are commonly encountered in order to develop strategies from peer feedback

Please note:  Participants are required to bring a laptop or tablet to class each day.
