Fall Coaching FB 01

Analyzing Data, Classroom Observations, and Providing Feedback

A Direct Instruction Coaching Academy for instructional coaches, peer coaches and others responsible for observing instruction and improving student performance

One of the most critical roles in a successful Direct Instruction implementation is the Peer Coach. With good, careful peer coaching, teachers will become more skilled and proficient in teaching the program, and students will excel with improved instruction.

In an implementation that does not incorporate high-quality peer coaching, some teachers will become stars, but some may demonstrate little to no improvement, keeping the implementation as a whole from achieving a high level of success.

With effective peer coaching, staff development and strong leadership, teachers using Direct Instruction will improve dramatically, and students will progress farther and faster than they ever have before.

Join the National Institute for Direct Instruction (NIFDI) and Cheri Gerrein for a Direct Instruction Coaching Academy on the essentials of successful DI coaching. This session equips building and district-level instructional coaches, peer coaches, lead teachers and mentor teachers with critical coaching and support skills.

Through demonstrations, practice and hands-on activities, participants will learn how to:

  • Gain meaningful information from lesson progress and in-program mastery data.
  • Model how to improve written records.
  • Conduct supportive classroom observations aimed at increasing student success.
  • Provide effective oral and written feedback to instructors that will directly impact student performance.
  • Conduct classroom demonstrations, in-class coaching and team-teaching.
  • Design and deliver efficient on-going professional development sessions.
