Cognitive CoachingSM is a research-based model that capitalizes upon and enhances teachers' cognitive processes.

In the eight-day Seminars, participants learn how to:

-develop trust and rapport
-develop an identity as a mediator of thinking
-utilize conversation structures for planning, reflecting and problem resolving
-develop teachers' autonomy and sense of community
-develop higher levels of efficacy, consciousness, craftsmanship, flexibility and interdependence
