Summer Coaching Institute, Seattle: July 7-10, 2009

Greetings from Portland, where I am hosting the Promise of Coaching Institute, which is presented by nationally-acclaimed coach Katherine Casey, author of Literacy Coaching: The Essentials (Heinemann, 2006).

Many people have asked me if we will be offering a Coaching Institute this summer and the answer is “Yes, we will!”

Join nationally-acclaimed author and coach, Katherine Casey, in an interactive session designed to address key issues relevant to the work of content-focused coaching. The 4-day Institute is open to practitioners from all grade levels.

Through extensive use of video, conversation, role-playing, individual and collaborative planning, participants will engage in a variety of learning experiences to build knowledge and skills for instructional coaching:

Observe and analyze instruction to identify leverage points for coaching work
Analyze videos of coaching in action
Consider a range of coaching strategies in relation to identified purpose(s)
Craft coaching schedules for maximum effect
Develop a rationale for coaching based on articulated values and beliefs
Embed specific learning outcomes and accountability into professional development practice
Deepen understanding of the important principal-coach relationship and the skills necessary for collaboration
Design powerful professional development experiences focused on student learning
