Our Explicit Instruction program is fantastic, but sometimes campuses and districts need a bit more help implementing Explicit Instruction.
Our coaching program is designed to help educators, campuses, and districts of all shapes and sizes to better implement Explicit Instruction in their classrooms. We work with your admin staff to create a custom package that fits your campuses needs, that contains a combination of onsite visits and professional development opportunities. The end result is that your teachers get Explicit Instruction training and coaching that helps them succeed.
Most of our packages are custom-crafted for your campus or district, because what works for one campus or district doesn’t always work for another. However we’ve put together possible packages to help you gauge what we can offer.
Our small package is great for campuses or districts looking to dip their toes into Explicit Instruction, or who have highly specialized needs. We’ll bring our specialists to you, providing 1 day of PD to multiple staff members. We’ll then follow it up with 5 days of coaching for your teachers.contact kim
Our medium package is a step up, providing one more day of PD for multiple staff members, and combining that with 5 days of Coachingcontact kim
Our advanced package sends 10 teachers through our Explicit Instruction Institute, and then provides custom followup coaching for those teachers.contact kim
Contact our specialist, Kim Watts via email or phone and let us know what you’re looking for and your classroom needs. We’ll chat, determine a plan that works for you, or create a new custom one.
Before the coaching begins, we’ll schedule any Explicit Instruction professional development you’ll need. Our specialists will train your campus staff and prepare them for using Explicit Instruction. If you’ve already had Explicit Instruction, we’ll jump straight into the coaching.
Our first visit will be via zoom where we’ll talk with your teachers, principals, or other staff members necessary. We’ll use this session to get a feel for what your specific needs, anxieties, or concers are related to Explicit Instruction.
After meeting virtually we’ll meet in person for observations. We’ll observe your teachers during their classes, making notes on what’s going great and what could need some help. We’re not there to evaluate, just to lend a helpful hand.
Post-observation, we’ll debrief with teachers, principals, and all necessary staff members to create a custom improvement plan. We’ll work with your teachers to help them fine-tune their participation, engagement, assessment, or whatever they might need help with.
