Match Teacher Residency is offering an online course called "Coaching Teachers: Promoting Changes that Stick". This 5-week-long course will begin in April.
About the Course:
Teachers face a blizzard of decisions. Scholars estimate that teachers have over 1000 unique exchanges with students every day, most of which are unplanned and require quick decision making. And then there are the myriad daily decision points related to curriculum planning, assessing student work, and interactions with parents and colleagues. Amidst this frenzy, it's easy for "bad" habits to set in, and hard to break them once they do.
Even teacher coaching that's described as "good" can sometimes fall short of resulting in meaningful change. The coach might see and say the right things, and the teacher might be very appreciative of the feedback. But unless the coaching drives true changes in behavior, the "good" in this case could actually end up being the enemy of effective.
Match Education trains and employs dozens of coaches who provide intensive support for teachers in Boston and New Orleans. Course participants will be introduced to Match's Five key principles of effective coaching, which strike the right balance between providing clear direction for teachers, while giving them the support they need to achieve their goals.
Orin Gutlerner will be the course instructor.
The course will have a workload of 2-4 hours of work / week.
It will be taught in English and the subtitles will be available in English.
