Webinar: Coaching Advancing Teaching Practices


When: Tuesday, June 29, 2010, 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Where: TTA Center and online

Designed for: Teams of Head Start and Early Head Start programs including directors, education managers and supervisors, and child care and preK partners

The latest research confirms: coaching when done intentionally and systematically is a powerful professional development strategy for classroom teachers. Yet, being an effective coach involves far more than knowing what “good” classroom teaching looks like. Coaches must not only understand theoretical practice and the research base supporting it, but also know how to encourage teachers to apply new and more intentional practices in their daily work with children and one another.

To help support your program’s efforts in establishing or advancing your approach to coaching, the TTA Center will present an interactive webinar that will involve you in examining: 1) the latest research on coaching; 2) various models of coaching; and 3) several elements of coaching—relationship building, using data, focusing the observation, videoing teacher practices, and structuring the reflective conference and goal setting.
