Presented by Ann Hoffman
Data gathering is critical to effective instructional coaching because it helps make the invisible visible by providing the capacity to assess the kinds of ques- tions being asked in the classroom, the use of instructional time, and student engagement. Based on the Data Toolkit in The Impact Cycle (2017) and the datagathering information included in Focus on Teaching (2014) by Jim Knight, this workshop presents the data points needed to help teachers obtain a clear picture of reality, set goals, and monitor progress toward goals. Participants will be guided through several methods of gathering data and learn how to effectively analyze data to determine specific areas for improvement.Participants will:
- Practice gathering data and calibrating the coaching process to it
- Receive provisional forms that can be adjusted to participants’ specific needs
Participants will receive a copy of the Gathering Data Workbook.
