3-Day Series

Feb. 20, 2019 - Reflective Coaching: Thoughtful Practitioners, Not Ego-Guardians

This session provides dozens of practical tips for successful coaching interactions, and even more question/prompt stems to get teachers and students talking and analyzing, creating their own insights without feeling threatened. With cognitive coaching, we learn to honor what the other person brings to the table, and learn to facilitate their discoveries, not telegraph our judgments. Such facilitated coaching allows us to take deeper dives into practice and develop tools of respectful discourse. Don't miss this chance to improve your practice and help colleagues and students do the same.


April 24, 2019 - Getting to Know Your Students So You Can Actually Differentiate

Differentiated Instruction is responsive teaching, but we can't respond to students we do not know. Join us for a practical look at the tools and methods for getting to know your students quickly and throughout the year so you can make informed responses to their learning differences, and enhance the classroom experience for both you and your students.​
