Cognitive Coaching Foundations – Spring

January 17, 2024

Cognitive Coaching Foundations is a research-based model that capitalizes upon and enhances teachers’ cognitive processes. The ultimate goal of Cognitive Coaching is to support teachers in their ability to self-monitor, self-analyze, and self-evaluate.

In this workshop, you will learn ways to expand and refine your knowledge and skills to further more effective teaching and learning. The focus is on strategies that enhance teachers’ intellectual growth and strengthen instructional decision-making. During the workshop, trained facilitators demonstrate and help participants practice the maps and tools of Cognitive Coaching. Specifically, participants will learn to establish rapport, create trust, and conduct planning, reflecting, and problem-resolving conversations. These maps and tools develop teacher self-efficacy and cognitive autonomy, while also developing a sense of community within a school.

In the eight-day series, participants learn how to:

  • Develop trust and rapport
  • Develop an identity as a mediator of thinking
  • Utilize conversation structures for planning, reflecting and problem resolving
  • Develop teachers’ autonomy and sense of community
  • Develop higher levels of efficacy, consciousness, craftsmanship, flexibility, and interdependence
  • Apply four support functions: coaching, evaluating, consulting, collaborating
  • Utilize the coaching tools of pausing, paraphrasing, and posing questions
  • Distinguish among the five forms of feedback
  • Use data to mediate thinking
