We believe that quality professional learning should be ongoing and job embedded. Instructional coaching model research tells us that instructional coaching has a positive impact on teaching and student learning through:
- The innovative use of short video clips that allows teachers to observe and analyze their own instruction;
- The intentional focus on teachers’ successes in the classroom as a basis for coaching that is strengths-based; and
- The systematic attention to how classroom interactions can be used to improve student engagement and learning.
