Coach for Success

Coach for Success

In collaboration with WestEd, Arizona Department of Education’s K–12 Academic Standards and Exceptional Student Services sections will be hosting a three-session coaching training. This coaching training will prepare staff to use a process of observation and analysis in a variety of settings to support teaching and learning. Participants will be guided through a differentiated coaching process and will learn a system designed to provide useful feedback to teachers while at the same time guiding the improvement of effective instructional strategies to meet the needs of all learners. When considering coaching language along a continuum of being direct, evaluative, consultative, collaborative and coaching, this training will provide explicit instruction on using language that is direct, evaluative and consultative while blending in coaching language.

Professional development and coaching will be provided in a four-step process. Participants will learn differentiated coaching strategies, including theoretical and skill applications that serve as the framework for direct, facilitative, and blended coaching models. Also, participants will hear about how to determine which type of coaching message, format, and approach best supports teachers as learners. Strategies for difficult conversations, varied ways to work with adult learners, along with strategies to develop trust, improve communication, and guide adults through the change process will also be addressed. The strategies learned through this professional development series will provide school and district teams with practical applications that move instruction toward a collective responsibility for student learning.

Assistive Technology Assessment with Penny Reed
Are you confused about your responsibility to provide assistive technology devices and services? Are you frustrated with delays in obtaining AT assessments from sources outside of your district or with the cost of those assessments? Are you looking for an efficient, effective way to determine a student’s need for assistive technology? Then this workshop is for you! This workshop will present a team-based model for completing assistive technology considerations and assessment. It begins with a brief overview of the laws related to the provision of assistive technology in the schools. A simple, easy-to follow system of AT considerations of IEP teams will be demonstrated. Then an assistive technology assessment process will be explained. This assessment process includes three stages: information gathering, decision making, and trial implementation. Specific, easy-to-follow forms will be provided. There will be opportunities for guided practice and feedback throughout the day.
