Coaching is not about teaching the caterpillar how to fly, it’s about creating an opening for it to see the possibility. Paul Lefebvre
Why Peer Coaching? Traditional methods of professional development have limited success in promoting new strategy implementation – Little to no opportunity for reflection. – Generally limited to “skill” learning with no follow-up – Limited implementation in the classroom
A Content Coach Works on the premise that teachers want to – Extend their content knowledge – Increase their instructional strategies – Use assessment to plan effective lessons Is able to help a colleague reflect on his/her instruction to grow in these areas Does all this in a safe, non- evaluative, non-threatening manner.
At your table…. Talk about what coaching means to you. – Have you ever coached before? – Have you ever been coached before? – What was the experience like?
In coaching we believe that Each of us has resources that enable us to grow and change from within. The person being coached, not the coach, evaluates what is good or poor, appropriate or inappropriate, effective or ineffective about his/her work.
Role of the Coach To support and guide Participating Teachers at the site in the process of providing history/social studies instruction in support of the adopted curriculum – Modeling effective, curriculum-aligned lessons – Collaboration on effective strategies – One-on-one support of Participating Teachers – Data collection

The International Reading Association says: Adolescents today require high degrees of literacy in order to understand complex texts in a variety of media, covering a range of topics and subject areas. Every day in the US 3,000 students drop out of school The main reason they give is that they do not have the literacy skills to be successful.

Read & Run Form pairs. Each participant has the questions to be answered. The first person runs and reads the poster, finds the answer to the first question, comes back and teaches his partner. Partner writes the answer. Second persons runs to find the answer to the second question while person 1 is writing his response. Person two returns, teaches person 1 and person 1 records the answer and then leaves in search of the answer to question 3.
