Support: moral, liaison, student support,
Hopes and Fears based on Role Play
“Dr Ida Boss” was one of the 'names' made for a role in the role play. LOL
“Embrace individual talent combined with experience.”
ICs can provide a Coaching ‘Menu’ of services; foot in the door if teacher chooses something off the menu but IC could then turn that into data. Light coaching vs heavy coaching.
One suggestion was that each teacher have a "Pineapple Chart" on the door saying observer welcomed in….with learning goal…activity showcased. The pineapple being a symbol for 'welcome.'

Compliant does not equal engagement
Motivation: can be positive and negative --> positive yields greater results
Data & Analysis
Under that “data point” is a child.
Connections & Reflections: How do coaches support teachers to positively impact student learning?
*For any soul who is hanging with me and reading all of this I promise to have more coherent, reflective, deep posts in the future....or at least I will do my best. Maybe if you are a sciencey person like myself, this stream of consciousness I am sharing makes perfect sense to you. :)
