Our coaching methodology centers on the principles of action research, and job-embedded best practices to provide the most personalized and differentiated approach to meet the needs of our participants. This professional learning is designed to support each participant with what they need, not a one-size-fit all approach. In curriculum implementation, the needs of educators vary greatly based on their experience, implementation level, and mindsets. Our Student-Centered Literacy coaches use the “Try, Measure, Learn” approach to encourage narrow, actionable shifts as they refine their knowledge of the curriculum, make formative decisions around student learning progress, and build their own student-centered literacy skills.
This coaching model and support was developed for teachers, instructional coaches, and leaders implementing student-centered literacy practices.
While workshops introduce participants to ideas to build their awareness, and give them time to explore and reflect collaboratively to develop understanding, coaching is an ongoing learning experience that supports educators as they apply key ideas and helps them move closer to ownership of the curriculum and the principles it represents.
