2 SEASONAL PARTNERS Take sticky note Divide into 4 quadrants Label for each season Find partners

3 Reflection Nov. IC Mtg. Anything that would make this PL better? Would love copy of ppt. LOVED the format with SMART board in the morning and IC Role defined in afternoon. I REALLY felt good leaving Friday having a clearer vision of what role I play on my campus. I enjoyed the pacing and the activities. This day was very beneficial to me…thank you!!!

4 Reflection Nov. IC Mtg. Anything that would make this PL better? Suggestion ~ I feel professional learning is not best learned on Fridays ~ especially Friday before a holiday. If we could schedule future meetings on another day of the week I feel we could take in the information more productively.

5 Anything that would make this PL better? For us to have had the opportunity to go back and apply it immediately in our coaching ---holiday made it hard to do that. I feel like I could have absorbed the information better if the training was not at a holiday break time. Coming back to work today I felt lost looking at the material again to refresh myself. Reflection Nov. IC Mtg.

6 Anything that would make this PL better? No I was glad to have some more details about the coaching model we are implementing, and would like to continue having more discussion. I would love to have PLC time for our coaching group! Reflection Nov. IC Mtg.

7 How will this impact your coaching in the next month? It will help me focus my efforts with teachers…hopefully moving towards instructional coaching. Trying to focus on the reflection piece of coaching will be a goal for the next month. Reflection Nov. IC Mtg.

8 How will this impact your coaching in the next month? I would like to get into classrooms to see the SMART boards in action and look at how the teachers are using them so I can help them. The afternoon session heightened my awareness as to where I need to gradually “release” teachers. I am going to start doing a lot of self reflection on how I question my teachers when they come to me for help, making sure that I facilitate how they come up with the answers to their problems. Reflection Nov. IC Mtg.

9 How will this impact your coaching in the next month? I was able to identify areas of strength and weaknesses and will be able to build upon both areas. I am going to make a conscious effort to engage teachers in dialogue and really allow their voice to be heard. I think working on these two pieces first will open more doors to true instructional coaching. I am learning beneficial tools to help me become a better coach. Reflection Nov. IC Mtg.

10 How will this impact your coaching in the next month? I will use the Partnership Philosophy to better my instruction/communication with my teachers. I like the cards with definitions and examples we were given to use --- they will be very beneficial. Much clearer focus about my role. I will meet with principal to discuss. Reflection Nov. IC Mtg.

11 How will this impact your coaching in the next month? This has already provided us with direction for guiding our upcoming PLC times and professional development sessions. Has already interested me in wanting to read Jim Knight’s book, Instructional Coaching. Now have short term goals set for next month. Reflection Nov. IC Mtg.

12 How will this impact your coaching in the next month? I plan to model and co-teach with a different outcome approach --- the teacher and I will engage in more dialogue and set a plan of action for continued success. Reflection Nov. IC Mtg.
