Student-Centered Coaching: Content-Focused Certificate

These courses are open to current, previous, and prospective Coaching Certificate participants.

Our student-centered coaching courses take a practice-oriented approach to the work of coaching that applies broadly across content areas. These content-focused courses allow participants to zoom in on a particular content area for deeper exploration around standards and learning targets, the alignment and design of formative assessments, and the analysis of student evidence in order to make next instructional steps. A brief introduction to the seven essential practices of the student-centered coaching model is provided for participants who have not taken Foundations of Student-Centered Coaching. All  participants then consider how these essential practices relate specifically to current expectations of K-12 literacy or mathematics instruction. Participants engage in collaborative discourse at their sites and within online Professional Learning Communities (PLCs) as they ​work to build a culture of literacy or math learning for students and educators, examine what student-centered means in a literacy or mathematics classroom, and ​collaborate to extend their learning and further develop content-specific resources for use back at their sites.

Participants who complete the 4-course coaching series in addition to either Student-Centered Coaching in Literacy or Math will receive a coaching certificate with this distinction.
