Examples of Five-Minute Coaching
So many teachers to coach but so little time! A simple coaching cycle might consist of a Five minute pre-conference, 30-minute observation, 10-minute post conference, and 30 minutes of professional development. Most APs don’t have 75 minutes to invest in a single coaching cycle. But what if there was a form of coaching that would allow you to do 15 coaching sessions in the same amount of time as a traditional coaching cycle. You could support 15 teachers instead of one, or work with three teachers five different times! In a world that moves so quickly, seventy five-minute coaching may not make sense, but 5-minute coaching most certainly does!
