PLAEA September 2018 Coaching for Advancing Coaches’ Practices that Impact Teaching and Learning Level 1 (Area Wide) (8082)


This Professional Learning will take place at the participant's home District.

Coaches can model for other coaches and teachers the importance of having a coach to collaboratively assess their current skills and practices for the purpose of growth. Engaging in coaching provides a safe structure and organization for coaches to reflect upon their strengths and the needs of their teachers to identify areas for self-growth. The observation cycle provides job-embedded learning for coaches who are interested in honing their skills and practices for  impacting teaching and learning.



Participants will know/understand that the…

… likelihood of transferring new learning from professional development into practice increases nearly 80% when coaching is added to an explanation of theory, demonstration, and low-risk practice

… dispositions of effective teachers and coaches are for them to be reflective, curious, and persistent and that these dispositions can be learned and enhanced through coaching

… coaching includes significant collaboration, choice and voice

…  tools coaches use with other coaches to reflect on practice, set growth goals, and plan next steps mirror those that coaches use with teachers


Participants will be able to …

participate in professional learning, apply new learning in coaching interactions with teachers, reflect upon the influence on teachers, and share the reflection with another coach

… conduct coaching cycles with teachers and plan strategic next steps

… use coaching standards/traits of effective coaches to co-assess*  practices on a continuum, set a growth goal(s), and implement actions to improve coaching practices ----Possible Coaching Standards/Traits: NTC coaching standards and continuum of practices, Diane Sweeney’s Trait Rubric, Sweeney’s Trait Rubric adapted for Jim Knight - (*the co-assessor can be another coach, AEA consultant, administrator)

… engage in the observation cycle (pre-observation conversation, observation, and post-observation conversation)  at least three times through the year using any combination of a district peer coach, AEA staff member, coaching peer from another district, and/or an administrator to gather evidence of practice, reflect on evidence to identify progress toward growth goal, and  plan next steps

… write  a brief summary of progress made on the growth goal, how the process supported the growth, and next steps for ongoing growth to share with other coaches

What must I do to withdraw from a class?

Withdrawal (cancellation) by Participant Prior to Beginning of an Activity:

To withdraw (cancel an activity registration) and request a refund, please contact Registrar up to two weeks before the start of the activity.  Two options are available: (1) the registration fee will be refunded or (2) registration fee may be transferred to another activity.  Additional fees due for new activity must be received before registration will be transferred.

Registered participants will be notified and two options will be made available:
  1. the registration fee will be refunded or
  2. the registration fee can be transferred to another class within two weeks.


Why can't I access the end-of-class evaluation?

The three most common reasons for difficulty accessing an evaluation survey are . . .
  1. The URL link appears on two lines in the email and is "broken."  If this seems to be the case, copy and paste the entire URL address into your browser and try again.  If this does not work, . . .
  2. The class may have already been processed and archived, which means the survey is also archived and no longer accessible. This will usually occur 3-4 weeks after the class has ended.
  3. The browser you are using might be an older version and needs updating. Click on the gray System Requirements tab found on the Avatar pre-login Home page for what browsers work the best.
