Coaching: An Integral Part of the School Improvement Process


Culturally Responsive Leadership: A 21st Century Essential


Why this kind of coaching?

School leaders often engage in coaching in order to respond to a problem or react to a specific incident.

These kinds of conversations are necessary to manage school operations, but they do not address the type of “deep change” necessary to transform school practices to be inclusive of all students. 1

Culturally Responsive Leadership


Foundations of our Coaching Approach

Learning Sciences

Third Space Dialogue

Multicultural Research

Cultural Historical Activity Theory


How People Learn

Learning scientists concur:

Deeper conceptual understanding comes from active participation in one’s own learning

,

(Sawyer, 2005)


Perception


Culturally Responsive: ThirdSpace

Coach

Coachee

ThirdSpace


Respect, Reciprocity, and Responsiveness

Respect

the identity of others – recognize boundaries and allow differences to be accepted.

Responsiveness

Integrate diverse strengths to create more inclusive options

ThirdSpace

Reciprocity

Understanding that one point of view need not dominate or exclude diverse points of view.


Dimensions of the Culturally Responsive Matrix

From Understanding Cultural Contributions to

Action for Equity


Understanding Culture as a Variable


Understanding Culture as the Dynamic Ingredient in Human Interaction

Cultural Histories

What people bring

with them

What’s already

there

The work people

do together

The Institutional Culture

The Culture We Create


Down to Brass Tacks: How To Do It!!

Steps to:

Technical

Contextual

Critical


Components of a Coaching Conversation


Three ways of entering coaching discussions

Critical

Contextual prompts reveal underlying beliefs and cultural practices of a school that afford and/or constrain culturally responsive practices.

Technical coaching conversations support coachees in solving specific and direct problems of practice in their schools.

Coaching Discussion

Critical prompts guide the coachee to examine underlying beliefs and practices that maintain and sustain the status quo in power and privilege and the coachee’s role in that process.

Technical

Contextual


Technical coaching conversations support addressing changes in practice


Example of Technical Prompts

The significant problems we face cannot be solved at the same level of thinking we were at when we created them. – Albert Einstein


Contextual coaching conversations help to make school culture transparent


Example of Contextual Prompts

We don’t see things as they are, we see them as we are. – Anaïs Nin


Critical prompts guide the coachee to examine her own beliefs and practices in supporting CR practices.

Critical coaching

dialogues examine power and privilege, who benefits from school practices, and how to bring students who have been marginalized into the “center” of school culture

Plan moves/

activities to initiate change

Expand awareness


Example of Critical Prompts

He who cannot change the very fabric of his thought will never be able to change reality, and will, therefore, never make any progress. – Anwar Sadat


How are divergent viewpoints honored and shared in your staff culture?

In what ways are your IEP meetings structured to encourage team discussion and sharing of ideas?

Critical, Contextual, or Technical?

In what ways do you consciously infuse awareness of power and privilege in your team discussions?


Coaching for Culturally Responsive Practices includes . . .

establishing cognitive, reflective frameworks for action . . .

ThirdSpace

Developing a culturally responsive ThirdSpace . . .

Coach

Coachee

where you can work together to target equity outcomes!


Collaborate to create shared expectations of collaboration, participation, and differentiated instruction

Use ThirdSpace to develop a shared understanding of inclusive practice

Use cognitive strategies to help others broaden their perspectives

Don’t spend all of your time in a problem-solving space!


If there is any great secret of success in life, it lies in the ability to put yourself in the other person’ s place and to see things from his point of view as well as your own. – Henry Ford
