How would you define Instructional Coaching? What is your experience with Instructional Coaching?

the role of the coach
The Role of the Coach

Instructional coaching is emerging as an important approach to helping teachers improve their practice. It is, however, much more.

Coaching is part of a whole-school improvement strategy that fosters collective problem solving and offers highly targeted professional development embedded in teachers’ daily work.

It is a structure designed to enhance practice, build collaborative cultures and improve student learning.

the role of the coach1
The Role of the Coach

Instructional coaches team with teachers and provide one-on-one, side-by-side assistance, working together on specific needs in their classrooms. They provide professional development for teachers and school leaders with real-time support focused on changing practice, increasing student engagement, and improving student achievement.

Coaches offerprofessional learning opportunities focused on both content and process, and they play a broader role:  nurturing a learning community in their schools to ensure that teaching improvements are shared, ongoing, and focused directly on identified needs in that school.

The Role of the Coach
  • What roles do you have in the schools you work with?
  • How can these relate to coaching?
pre conference planning before
Pre-Conference Planning (Before)

An instructional coach works collaborativelywith the teacher to . . .

• identify the focus for the visitation

• review instructional goals and materials

• clarify the role of the coach during the classroom visitation

• identify what the teacher should watch for during a model lesson

• co-construct visitation form

• establish a time for debriefing


Classroom Visitation (During)

Based on the pre-conference, the coachand the teacher agree to one of thefollowing:

• Coach models a lesson/strategy with anidentified area of focus for the teacher

• Teacher and Coach co-teach

• Coach watches the teacher and

collects data using the co-constructed form


The coach provides feedback for the teacherbased on the teacher’s identified focus. Thecoach…

• Uses the co-constructed observation form to

collect data related to the identified focus areas

• Respects the parameters of the visitationprotocol

• Ensures that data collected are objective andnon-evaluative

• Reminds the teacher of the debriefingappointment


Debriefing (After)

• The debriefing is most effective when both partieshave had an opportunity to reflect and prepare theirthoughts

• The lesson is reviewed by discussing the areas of

focus agreed upon in the “before” or planning stage

• The instructional coach and teacher discuss studentengagement and how students responded to thelesson

• The coach helps the teacher recognize theareas of strength and areas of needin that lesson
