10 Partnership Principles The Theory Behind Instructional Coaching Equality- We all have equal value. Praxis- Real-life practical application. Dialogue- Two people thinking together. Choice- Individuals make their own reflective decisions. Voice- The opportunity to express one’s point of view. Reflection- The freedom to consider ideas before making a choice. Reciprocity- Everyone learns from one another. Jim Knight 2007 10 Mark McBeth 2010

11 Equality A belief that everyone counts Doesn’t mean we all agree Doesn’t mean we’re all the same We all have equal value Each opinion counts Jim Knight 2007 11 Mark McBeth 2010

12 Dialogue Respectful, energizing conversation The developing conversation is more important than being right Involves suspending opinions & authentic listening Thinking together Jim Knight 2007 12 Mark McBeth 2010

13 Reflection The teacher cannot rely on either instinct along or on prepackaged sets of techniques. Instead, she or he must think about what is taking place, what the options are and so on, in a critical, analytical way. In other words the teacher must engage in reflection. -Brubacher, Case, and Reagan Teachers are knowledge workers. Teachers need professional autonomy to make decisions. Otherwise, there is resistance. Jim Knight 2007 13 Mark McBeth 2010
