Student-Centered Coaching is an evidence-based instructional coaching model that shifts the focus from ‘fixing’ teachers to collaborating with them to design instruction that targets student outcomes. In this session, participants will learn the guiding principles and core practices for Student-Centered Coaching. We will focus on:

  • Comparing Student-Centered Coaching with other coaching models;
  • Exploring the core practices for Student-Centered Coaching, including measuring the impact of coaching cycles;
  • Building principal and coach partnerships; Learning the role of student evidence as an essential component of coaching; and
  • Strategies for organizing and scheduling the coaching work.
