The pandemic has created gaps that have especially affected our most vulnerable students. If we are strategic, coaching can play a role in filling these gaps. Coaches can work with teachers to formatively assess and create plans for the students we are striving to serve. By helping teachers build intentional relationships with their students, we are also able to facilitate the creation of a close up view of how they are progressing as learners and what additional support they might need. This session will focus on:

  • Supporting teachers to build asset-based relationships with their students at the start of the school year
  • Using student evidence to provide a strong foundation in formative assessment
  • Co-planning high quality lessons that meet the needs of all students


Administrators, Instructional Coaches, Teacher Leaders
