Student-Centered Coaching

September 6-7, Blue Ridge Community College


Student-Centered Coaching introduces a new way of looking at and delivering coaching that puts the needs of students front and center. By focusing coaching on specific goals for student learning rather than "fixing" teachers, a coach can navigate directly towards a measurable impact and increased student achievement. This session is a great fit for K-12 instructional coaches as well as principals who are leading a coaching effort. 


Join ASCD and Diane Sweeney for this two-day institute, where you will:

    - learn how to implement the core practices for student-centered coaching;

    - develop tools and techniques for engaging teachers in coaching cycles; and

    - gain ideas for leading a coaching effort in your school or division.
