  • Coaches need provide extensive training to teachers so they learn to use every piece of student work, all student responses, and student questions as data sources about how well students are learning. Even SUMMATIVE assessments become data sources—because we can determine whether or not individual students have mastered or are moving towards mastery of the identified standards.
  • The roles of an instructional coach focuses on the working relationships between a teacher and the coach in order to increase the teacher’s capacity to:PLAN lessons based on the systematic study of student needs through looking at student data- data analysisTHINK about the intentional choices teachers make in the instructional process. REFLECT with the coach on lessons as they implement instructional practices. (ETS)This process is cyclical and is characterized by teachers and coaches working at various levels within this coaching continuum based on STUDENT and STAFF needs.
