Instructional Coaching/Professional Learning

Self-reflection through video has developed into a powerful practice to improve teaching and learning at Douglas Primary School. Video recording, guided by the instructional coach, is being utilized to promote: • Student Engagement • A Teacher Coaching Cycle • Peer Collaboration The instructional coach and teachers work on deep coaching concepts to create focused goals and best practices within the classroom. The staff at DPS know the video process is a safe and non-judgmental way to inform and improve their practice of instructing. The use of the video recording has been adapted from the impact cycle developed by Jim Knight. The video sessions and impact cycle create clear and concise expectation for growth: • Identify- Teachers get a clear reality of their teaching and set specific goals. • Learn- Teachers focus on a strategy to implement. • Improve- Teachers implement the practice and gather data. • Follow up- Teacher and instructional coach meet and plan next action steps.
