NDMTSS: Leading Your Instructional Coaches: Getting the Best Results

During this two-day ASCD professional learning experience, veteran instructional coach Carol O’Connor will share leadership strategies for unlocking the power of instructional coaching to improve teacher practice in K-12 schools. The presenter will advocate for instructional coaching for all teachers, as the foundation of a strategic and differentiated professional development plan. This experience will help leaders identify coaching talent, organize a coaching program and focus the work of a coach.

In response to the growing accountability of schools for improving student achievement through cutting-edge classroom instruction, participants will explore various topics, including:

The critical skills and habits of an effective coach

Setting expectations for instructional coaches, and a toolkit of strategies for coaches and leaders to rely on

Strategic agreements between administrators and coaches that ensure teachers’ success

This workshop will also include opportunities for educator discussion (in small and large groups), thorough review and implementation support for coaching protocols, individual reflection, etc.
