Instructional Coaching Principles and Practices



July - November, 2024

This two-part APEX course is focused on both outlining foundation principles of instructional coaching while also dedicating time to the practical work of conducting the observation and feedback process. During the first 8 weeks, we will ground the learning in several key texts and do a guided practice of the coaching cycle. The texts used in this course are Plutarch’s essay “How to Tell a Flatterer from a Friend,” excerpts from The Art of Coaching, Never Underestimate Your Teachers, The Coaching Habit, and excerpts from Leverage Leadership 2.0. The second part, lasting 8 weeks, will shift gears into a mentorship model, with the facilitators meeting individually with participants to be a thought partner as they do the work of coaching on their campus.

Note about texts: The only required purchases will be Never Underestimate Your Teachers and The Coaching Habit, We will provide the Plutarch essay as well as the excerpts from The Art of Coaching and Leverage Leadership 2.0 within the course.
