The Teacher Coaching and Feedback Cohort is a professional learning experience that builds the instructional leadership capacity for building-level administrators.
Cohort members will observe, learn, and practice feedback and coaching strategies from the text, 7 Tools for Developing Teachers and Teaching (Mike Rutherford). Participants will observe live classes at schools and apply their learning in real time. Schools are selected by participants within the cohort. Focus areas for feedback and coaching will include the OTES rubric, district-specific goals, and school-wide initiatives.
The overall purpose is to develop the coaching and feedback skills of administrators to improve their teachers' instructional skills and techniques, leading to increased student achievement.
