The role of instructional coach was dramatically impacted by Covid-19. With the sudden shift to remote learning, many coaches initially spent their time serving as resource providers. This included helping teachers set up online libraries, figuring out the Learning Management (LMS), and making sure that students had access to the necessary technology. At the time, this made sense given what teachers were facing.

The issue arises when this is the only role that a coach plays. This may diminish the impact of the coaching program since these forms of support are not anchored in enhancing student learning.

Now that we are moving beyond the pandemic, it's time to reset the coaching role so that we can ensure that it is student-centered and outcomes-based. This session will focus on:

  • Defining what Student-Centered Coaching is and isn't

  • Resetting the expectations for participation in coaching cycles

  • Providing additional support through unpacking curricular units and lesson planning
