How It Works

Collaborative Coach is currently available for educators implementing Being a Reader™ Small-Group Sets 1–6, SIPPS® (Systematic Instruction in Phonological Awareness, Phonics, and Sight Words), or Caring School Community®.

Educators receive direct access to a Collaborative Coach who will provide program-specific coaching and feedback through our tool on the Learning Portal.

Coaching is personalized to meet each educator’s individual teaching practice and may include:

  • Guidance and insights into an aspect of instruction
  • Access to resources and tools to support instruction
  • Opportunities to share teacher reflections, student work, and student data
  • Opportunities to receive several rounds of professional feedback

The Collaborative Coach Cycle of Learning

While the professional learning content is tailored to each educator, the asynchronous coaching experience follows an intentional cycle:

    • The teacher completes a pre-coaching questionnaire to provide the coach with preliminary information prior to entering the cycle.
    • The coach uses the questionnaire data to help the teacher identify an area of focus and then provides a coaching activity, such as a targeted simulation or learning experience, to begin the cycle.
    • The teacher engages in the activity and uploads any necessary recordings or documents for the coach to review and provide feedback.
    • The coach reviews the teacher’s recordings to determine next steps, such as follow-up activities, tools, or specific guidance, and records feedback for the teacher.
    • The teacher reviews the feedback, reflects on instruction, and refines instruction accordingly.
    • The coach works with the teacher to determine additional next steps.

Hear from Educators Implementing Collaborative Coach

“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

“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
