Why this kind of coaching? Process

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

Steps to:

Technical

Contextual

Critical



Three ways of entering coaching discussions
Three ways of entering coaching discussions Interaction

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



Example of technical prompts
Example of Technical Prompts in practice

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



Example of contextual prompts
Example of Contextual Prompts culture transparent

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
Example of Critical Prompts beliefs and practices in supporting CR practices.

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


Critical contextual or technical

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 staff culture?Culturally Responsive Practices includes . . .

establishing cognitive, reflective frameworks for action . . .

ThirdSpace

Coach

Coachee

where you can work together to target equity outcomes!


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

Use cognitive strategies to help others broaden their perspectives

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