Teaching is a complex, intellectual activity. Teachers who think at higher levels produce students who are higher achieving, more cooperative, and better problem solvers. 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 supports individuals and organizations in becoming self-directed, and in turn, become self-managing, self-monitoring, and self-modifying.
Once again, the Arizona K12 Center is providing training in Cognitive Coaching. In this workshop, participants will learn ways to expand and refine knowledge and skills to promote more effective teaching and learning. The focus is on strategies that enhance teachers’ intellectual growth and strengthen instructional decision-making. Participants will practice and use the Cognitive Coaching maps and tools. Specifically, individuals will learn to: establish rapport, create trust, and conduct planning, reflecting, and problem-resolving conversations. These maps and tools develop teacher self-efficacy and cognitive autonomy, while also developing a sense of community within a school.
Each day, training will cover the following topics:
Day 1: Trust and Rapport and Four Support Functions
Day 2: Planning Conversation Map, Cognitive Coaching℠ Capabilities, Response Behaviors, and the Planning Conversation
Day 3: Review and Integration, Meditational Questions, and the Reflecting Conversation
Day 4: Five Categories of Feedback, Navigating Support Functions, The Role of Data in Mediating Thinking, and Reflecting Conversations with a Meta Coach
Day 5: Review and Reflection, Filters of Perception: Representational Systems, Cognitive Style, and Educational Belief Systems
Day 6: Cognitive Shift and The Problem-Resolving Conversation
Day 7: The Pace, Going for the Goal, and Listening for States of Mind
Day 8: States of Mind, The Lead, Pacing, and Leading
Registration includes training, materials, continental breakfast, and lunch.
