Collaborative Coach is a personalized, interactive, asynchronous coaching experience that provides one-on-one coaching for individual teachers or coaches in a safe and supportive environment.
“The Collaborative Coach experience helped me think more critically about how each routine builds onto the next, making corrective feedback an extremely important practice when teaching. Because I am firming up my delivery of routines, students are demonstrating more confidence when responding, have had more success when reading connected text, and most are passing their mastery test!”
-Kimberly L, District Resource Teacher, Hillsborough County Public Schools, FL
Educators receive direct access to a Collaborative Coach who will provides program-specific virtual coaching and feedback through our tool on the Learning Portal.
Coaching is personalized to meet each educator’s individual teaching practice and may include:
“This experience has awarded me with the opportunity to refresh myself on the essential components of the SIPPS program. The addition of a personal coach that offered suggestions, validations, and feedback was also of true value. Having the opportunity to do some cooperative learning as a professional was enlightening as well. I would say that collaborative investments are valuable to students and teachers.”
-Michell C., Title I Interventionist, Fayette County, WV
While the professional learning content is tailored to each educator, the asynchronous coaching experience follows an intentional cycle:
These asynchronous steps can be repeated or adjusted to support teacher practice.
Our Collaborative Coaches are experienced members of the Collaborative Classroom cadre of professional learning consultants. They bring extensive expertise as current teachers and coaches of Being a Reader and SIPPS and have a strong understanding of the research of literacy instruction.
The coaches’ program knowledge allows for strategic curriculum-based coaching that deepens teaching and learning. To foster a safe learning environment, each teacher engaging in a Collaborative Coach cycle will work with the same coach for the duration of the experience.
“This is the most powerful professional learning I have participated in throughout my career. This process allowed me to reflect on my own practice and have individual coaching feedback.”
–Kelly S., Interventionist/Title 1, Bethalto School District #8, IL
