Intensive Instructional Coaching Institute

Our goal behind what we do at the Instructional Coaching Group is that “every student receives excellent instruction everyday in every class.” We believe that instructional coaching is the most powerful way to make this happen. We also know that coaches will need support to implement the knowledge and skills necessary for coaching success and that coaches who are not supported by leaders in their school district will encounter many roadblocks.

To succeed, Instructional Coaches need deep knowledge and skills in at least six essential domains: (1) adult learning (2) an instructional coaching cycle, (3) using video recordings to gather data, (4) instructional practices described in an instructional playbook, (5) communication skills, and (6) leadership skills. Based on the content in Jim Knight’s books, this five-day intensive institute offers professional development addressing all six areas.

Small Group Post-Institute Workshops for Coaches of Coaches

These post-institute sessions have been created so that people who are responsible for coaches or who coach coaches will have an opportunity to learn and plan how to set up their coaching program to ensure their coaches have the knowledge and skills they need to succeed. During these workshops, a small group of participants will partner with Jim Knight to (a) learn how to apply all of the coaching coaches tools that have been developed by the Instructional Coaching Group, (b) develop specific plans for supporting coaches and educating others in their district, and (c) learn and share with others who are developing or supporting coaches.

PLEASE NOTE: THIS ADDITIONAL SPECIAL COACHING COACHES SESSION IS NOT AVAILABLE UNLESS YOU ARE REGISTERED FOR THE PREVIOUS FIVE-DAY INTENSIVE INSTRUCTIONAL COACHING INSTITUTE. IT IS AN ADD-ON ONLY AND CANNOT BE ATTENDED SEPARATE FROM THE INTENSIVE WORKSHOP. Please double check for availability before making travel arrangements.
