COACHING FOR IMPLEMENTATION
At LSI, we don’t do PD halfway. When you commit to training teachers in The Essentials for Achieving Rigor, we’re going to suggest content-aligned training for coaches and instructional leaders--period.
Coaching for implementation protects your PD investment. Without coaching, research shows PD gets 5% transference of new knowledge into classroom practice; with it, 95%. Frankly, 5% just isn’t good enough.
Sustainable gains happen when schools build internal capacity and provide teachers with specific, meaningful feedback on instruction and assessment.
If you can’t trace the impact of your PD on student learning, then it’s time to reevaluate why professional development hasn’t yet taken root in practice. We’re confident coaching will help.
Whether your coaching program has been going strong for years or is just starting, we’ll work with you to make sure instructional leaders know exactly how to support significant shifts in classroom practice to get the results everyone craves.
With LSI’s coaching for implementation, everyone shares the same goals, language, and commitment. This personal, small-group training forges the connection between rigorous core instruction and leadership practices that leads to student success.
THE ONLY SILVER BULLET
When it comes to raising student achievement quickly, consistently, and sustainably, there’s only silver bullet: highly effective teachers.
Wherever your students are in their learning--whether they come to school working at grade level or not, speaking English fluently or not, from homes full of books or not--a highly effective teacher is their best hope of succeeding.
Learning, four times faster
- Research shows that students learn four times faster with a highly effective teacher than with an ineffective teacher.
- Think about that.
- Students with great teachers learn in six months instead of twenty-four.
- Do your students have two years to spare?
An effective teacher is a student’s best hope. A great coach is a teacher’s best hope.
