Student-Centered Coaching Foundations

April 30 @ 8:30 am - 3:30 pm EDT

Location: Thomas College

Led by Julie Wright, Diane Sweeney’s east coast consultant.
Registration fees — $200 Instructional Coaching Co-Op members; $300 non-members
Join us for this conference based on the work of Diane Sweeney and designed specifically for teachers serving in a
coaching capacity. During this two-day conference participants will learn more about Student-Centered Coaching, a
model for coaching that maintains a laser-like focus on students, is driven by data, and is established within a culture of
learning. By focusing on coaching for student learning – rather than on fixing teachers – a coach can make a
measureable impact on both student learning and teaching practice.
Participants will:

 Learn how to implement the seven core practices for student-centered coaching.
 Develop strategies for coaching small groups and individuals.
 Implement tools to measure the impact of coaching on student learning and instructional practice.
 Develop tools and techniques for engaging teachers in coaching cycles.
 Practice using strategies for rigorous and respectful discourse across coaching conversations.
 Use learning targets and formative assessments as a foundation for coaching.
