Instructional Coaching
What is Instructional Coaching (or IC)? IC for teachers occurs one-on-one or with teams to improve the implementation of best instructional practices. ICs support teachers with setting goals, planning instruction, and formative assessment, as well as solving problems. Coaches then support by facilitating deep conversations about classroom observations and data collection, while maintaining a confidential relationship with the teacher. They also provide non-judgmental, non-evaluative, effective feedback.
