Course Description:

This is a graduate level class. However, undergraduate credit is available upon request. There are no changes in content, price, or expectations.

The goal of the program is to identify a common understanding of the coaching process and levels of coaching and to apply learned coaching strategies to transform teacher's performance in the field of early language and literacy. Participants focus on transforming teacher-knowledge gained from professional development sessions into effective literacy practices in their learning environments. The five CORE domains: environment, play, oral language, early reading, and early writing, as well as Universal Design for Learning (UDL), Inclusion and Teacher collaboration serve as the coaching curriculum. Participation in the Teacher Leader Program involves professional development that includes but is not limited to: article reads & discussions, online lesson plan review, classroom video analysis, coaching reflections, development of coaching tools, group work, individual work, and session presentations.
