Deep Dive: Instructional Coaching and SIM

Deep Dive
8:00 AM - 11:30 AM
Regency C

The instructional coaching process described in recent publications bears little resemblance to the coaching process first described in the 2007 book Instructional Coaching. In this interactive, hands-on session, participants will (a) learn how the model has been refined over the past decade, (b) practice applying instructional coaching skills to specific SIM™ Content Enhancement Routines and Learning Strategies, and (c) discuss how elements of the new instructional coaching process can be used to translate SIM research into effective teaching practices that change students’ lives. If you’re interested in what it takes to get quality implementation of SIM that is sustained over time, you will find this session useful.
