Coaches' Standards
How can we do a pilot coaching cycle using this framework?
Google Doc
  • Questions (in red) on doc discussed & documented on the Google Doc
  • Domains removed & re-named to follow "Students learn best when" titles

Discussion:
  • Do we still need the "Therefore teachers will..." column on the table? -> Could it be renamed: types of evidence you might collect
  • Do we still need the "Therefore teachers will..." column at all?
  • Do we need the "Student Learning Evidence" column to be split into 2 (pre-action plan evidence & post-action plan evidence)

Next Steps:
  • Action Plan form for coaches to work with teachers
  • Maybe start with 1 per grade level (with the most crucial needs), prioritize with teaching team at that grade level, coaching team can help strategize
  • Move into coaching cycles, rotate through grade levels so teachers don't get overloaded (coaches are in on that team meeting during the cycle)
  • Next steps - try it out, use it in coaching and bring feedback to team to see if it works - How can we pilot this?

Action Plan Steps:
  1. Date: Student Learning Evidence Examined - Issue Identified
  2. Date: Collaborative Action Plan Created
  3. Date: Action Plan Implemented
  4. Date: Student Learning Evidence Collected
  5. Date: Reflection Based on Evidence (rinse & repeat as needed)
