Our new online course Student-Centered Coaching from a Distance is here! Don’t miss this opportunity to learn how to adapt Student-Centered Coaching to the current environment. As we return to ‘normal’ this will ensure that we won’t lose focus on things like deeply knowing our students, having a coherent and focused curriculum, and coaching from a place of formative assessment and evidence. These practices will endure for years to come.

Each session will address in person and virtual coaching and will include a series of moves you can make as an instructional coach. These moves are accompanied by 30 tools such as language stems, checklists, protocols, and other resources that provide structure and coherence to coaching conversations. A bonus is participants in the course will receive each of the tools in Google docs so they can be directly used to guide your coaching conversations.

Session 1 of the self-paced option is open for preview here and we have included a PDF of chapter 1 from Student-Centered Coaching from a Distance. The rest of the sessions will open when the book becomes available in March 2021. Copies are now available for pre-order at www.corwin.com and www.amazon.com.

This course is recommended for K-12 instructional coaches as well as school and district leaders. We will use our newest book, Student-Centered Coaching from a Distance (Sweeney and Harris) that will be available in February 2021. If you would like to get support sooner, feel free to reach out to [email protected] for other options.
