Direct Instruction Coaching Academy: Enhanced Coaching and Facilitating Professional Development
An effective coach will help the Direct Instruction teacher evolve from a technician to an engineer of instruction. This session will provide participants with information and practice in:
Refining observational skills to increase the coach’s ability to provide data-driven feedback, including both short and extended observations.
Facilitating rehearsal sessions to provide practice for instructional staff in lesson formats and program content.
Determining the appropriate intervention based on student performance data and observations. (A brief overview of written records in the Direct Instruction classroom will be provided as part of this training.)
Facilitating Data Analysis Team meetings to find and solve student performance problems in a timely manner.
Each participant that completes the 2-day Direct Instruction Coaching Academy will receive a certificate of participation.
