Student-Centered Coaching is an evidence-based instructional coaching model that shifts the focus from ‘fixing’ teachers to collaborating to meet their goals for student learning. This session is well suited for instructional coaches, administrators, and district leaders, and pairs with The Essential Guide for Student-Centered Coaching (Sweeney and Harris, 2020) and Student-Centered Coaching: The Moves (Sweeney and Harris, 2017).


The focus will be on...

Defining what Student-Centered Coaching is and isn’t Practices for building principal and coach partnerships
The role of student evidence as an essential component of coaching Measuring the impact of coaching on student and teacher learning
