Virtual Instructional Coaching

Engaging in a virtual instructional coaching cycle is an excellent opportunity for a teacher to hone in on one or more meaningful growth areas.  The six week cycle centers on the use of video as a concrete source of evidence of one’s teaching practice. Then reflection leads to the identification of goals and drives new learning and implementation of new strategies.
