It is the invisible skills of teaching, the thinking processes that underlie instructional decisions, which produce superior instruction. Cognitive Coaching 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 efficiency, consciousness, craftsmanship, flexibility and interdependence *apply four support functions: coaching, evaluating, consulting, collaborating *utilize the coaching tools of pausing, paraphrasing, and posing questions *distinguish among the five forms of feedback *use data to mediate thinking
