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 Odell Curriculum coaches use the “Try, Measure, Learn” approach to encourage narrow, actionable shifts in practice.
This coaching model and support was developed for teachers, instructional coaches, and teacher and school leaders implementing the Odell curriculum.
Because coaching is personalized, participants will move through awareness of the curriculum, to understanding and application, to ownership. Curriculum coaching usually moves from support with materials, to support with content, to support with craft, but not always in that order.
