Discover Jim Knight’s 7 Critical Factors to Boost Coaching Success
Presented by Ann Hoffman
California’s goal that every EL achieve English language proficiency and master the same challenging content standards as native speakers is certainly daunting. But coaching as a mechanism for realizing this growth doesn’t have to be. While many educational professionals find themselves in high-stakes coaching or leadership roles, they may lack the professional development tools to make an impact in their schools. That’s where Jim Knight’s High-Impact Instructional Coaching Institute fits in.
After nearly two decades of studying instructional coaching and working with more than 50,000 coaches worldwide, Jim Knight and his colleagues have identified the seven factors necessary for coaches to flourish. In this workshop, participants will learn how teachers, coaches, and teachers can zero in on high-impact strategies and a coaching model that makes a difference in student achievement, teacher engagement, and school climate.
The lack of professional learning for coaches places schools at risk. Decision makers in districts need to learn how to set up coaching programs so that they can save time and implement change efficiently. Districts also need to know what good coaching looks like so that they can create programs that really do improve the quality of students’ lives.
For close to two decades, Jim Knight and his colleagues have been studying instructional coaching. During this time, having worked with more than 50,000 coaches from around the world, they have identified seven factors that need to be in place for coaches to flourish.
Instructional Coaching—7 Success Factors for Coaching Programs will provide an overview of the 7 factors while providing an opportunity for participants to reflect on the next steps they need to take to ensure that all factors are ultimately in place for coaching.
The workshop addresses the following questions:
• What is the Impact Cycle and how can coaches use it in partnership with teachers to identify and meet goals?
• What is an instructional playbook and which high-impact teaching strategies should be part of any playbook?
• What is the learn component of the Impact Cycle and how should instructional coaches use checklists and modeling to help teachers learn and implement new practices?
• What is the improve component of the Impact Cycle and how should instructional coaches partner with teachers to gather data and make adjustments until a goal is met?
