COACHING SKILLS FOR HIGH IMPACT TEACHING

Peak performance will happen when you permit your imagination to study, explore and grow.

Motivation is training or programming the creative mind to desire or expect the best, plan and work for the best. Whatever you do in life, you are going to work hard for it, so you might as well choose to work hard for what you really love and want to do.

Education means awareness and use of what works. Things that work have a pattern, and this can be learned thoroughly and applied

Essential Classroom Coaching Skills:

Listening, modelling & thinking skills

Performance coaching to raise pupils’ aspirations

Techniques for change: Overcoming barriers to learning

the magic of goal setting

The Magic of Goal Setting

  • Research shows that people who have achieved success in different walks of life had precisely written goals or ‘well formed outcomes’-WFO in (NLP literature)
  • SMART :- Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic,Time-phased
  • Why does goal setting work?
  • We think and behave in a way consistent with our beliefs
  • Get pupils to write down goals and review them regularly (create the opportunity)
how our brain works

How our brain works

  • The Reticular Activating System (R.A.S.)
  • Thoughts (Self-talk)
  • Comfort zone(Feelings andemotions)

Value of beliefs and attitudes

· Reticular Activating System (R.A.S) and observations

·Thought forms and self-talk (Neuro-linguistic Programming)

· Feeling and emotions (comfort zones)

techniques for change

7

Techniques for change

  • Positive listings and reflection- a simple strategy to reinforce positive beliefs, thoughts, feelings and perceptions
  • Reframing - a powerful strategy for changing negative feelings and the effect on performance
  • Create powerful anchors – as expressive holding forms
  • Pattern breaking (distraction from the negative, attention on the positive technique)
  • Imagination – a natural ability to bring to mind what is seen, heard and felt
  • Rational analysis – an objective analysis of objects
  • Learning Log - (contact book, diary, visual journal)
  • Music and Symbols (Image, logo-NIKE, theme songs, anthems)
emotional barriers and solutions

7/8

Emotional barriers and solutions

  • Negative memories(Trigger: recurrence of negative performance memories -will lead to negative self-talk & emotional discomfort, the R.A.S. will notice things that are negative, poor results & that reinforce the memory)
  • Negative expectations -pupils project negative expectations of their future
  • A limiting belief(can be challenged & then create a better one)
  • Inappropriate emotions(fear, anxiety etc triggered by an external threat)
  • Other damaging thought patterns as barriers: jealousy, Self sabotage, unrealistic competitiveness, mindless gossip and lack of discipline
  • Judgemental beliefs and attitudes: Educated desire means programming for positive results, self-confidence and high self- esteem.
  • Goal setting for desired outcomes – using a ‘solution focused’ approach or systematic approach to a ‘Well-formed outcome’

Such complex social organizations as air traffic control towers continuously run the risk of disastrous and obviously unacceptable failure.

The public would heavily discount several thousand consecutive days of efficiently monitoring and controlling the very crowded skies over Chicago or London if two jumbo jets were to collide over either city.

Through fog, snow, computer-system failures, and nearby tornadoes, in spite of thousands of flights per day in busy skies, such a collision has never happened above any city, a remarkable level of performance reliability …

… By contrast, in the U.S., one of the most highly educated nations on earth, within any group of 100 students beginning first grade in a particular year, approximately 16 will not have obtained either their high school diploma or a General Education Development certificate 12-13 years later.

In Britain, just under half of all 16-year-old pupils will not have the benchmark of 5 or more high grade public examination passes in the national system. Obviously, many nations have even lower levels of educational performance.

Therefore, for me, …

Whilst coaching is about teacher development

It’s also about student entitlement to good teaching

“Young people today think of nothing but themselves. They have no reverence for parents or old age.”

Peter the Hermit, 1274

What do we know about effective behaviour management?

coaching skills for high impact teaching38

6/7

COACHING SKILLS FOR HIGH IMPACT TEACHING

Good behaviour management is a prerequisite for effective teaching and learning

Again, we can identify what effective teachers do

We shouldn’t tip-toe round the issue

A heavy focus on systems can create problems

Keep it simple, and light

Don’t use charismatic teachers as mentors

Take a long-term approach: not quick hits

Some principles:

slide39

What we know from research into behaviour management …

Proactive schools have better behaviour – early intervention and preventative measures.

There are higher rates of difficulty and exclusion in schools with lower confidence in their ability to handle the problem.

Schools that form tight communities do better – spectrum of adult roles, engaging students personally and getting them involved. These schools have a more diffuse teacher role, with frequent contact between staff and students in contexts other than the classroom.

The action teachers take in response to a ‘discipline problem’ has no consistent relationship with their managerial success in the classroom. However, what teachers do before misbehaviour occurs is shown to be crucial.

In well-disciplined schools, teachers handle all or most of the routine discipline problems themselves. Indeed, the over-use of hierarchical referrals is a characteristic of high excluding schools.

One of the most worrying assumptions is that if mild punishment does not prove effective, then we should try more severe punishment.

In other words, one is led into a false escalation, rather like the postcard notice: “The beatings will continue until morale improves”.

Reactive approaches to difficult behaviour can and do make matters worse.

Schools make a difference: pupils’ behaviour does NOT simply mirror behaviour at home.

Teachers engage in 1000 interactions or more a day. It is closest to being an air traffic controller. Teachers therefore react and make quick decisions. If they do not have a way of coping with the busyness they can experience tiredness and stress.

Collaborative approaches lead to better behaviour – rather than individual teachers isolated.

Schools that promote self-discipline and active involvement do better.

  • Learn alongside your pupils - Treat them as equal learners and prepare your lessons as you would if you were going to coach your team to win every time.

  • Define and focus your coaching goals –use the R.A.S to set up a desire (passion) for learning something new everyday, observe and note how you did it – identify your learning patter
