Teacher-effectiveness and evaluation is a complex task for all stakeholders. How can we help teachers grow, while upholding our responsibilities as evaluators?

Those with training in Cognitive Coaching℠ know the value of fostering self-directedness in educators, by mediating thinking and decision-making. 

This two-day workshop is designed specifically for administrators, mentors, peer evaluators, or others responsible for formal or informal evaluation of educators in their contexts.

This training will introduce participants to specific Cognitive Coaching℠ tools that can be used in the context of evaluation, building comprehension, and skills for self-directedness through evaluation.

The Arizona K12 Center is providing this training in partnership with Thinking Collaborative℠.  Attendees will focus on coaching conversations that support professional development and promote self-directedness, growth, and learning. 

Seminar topics include: Advanced Listening, Four Support Functions, Trust and Rapport, Paraphrasing, Posing Questions, Forms of Feedback, and the Calibrating Conversation Map.

Participants are encouraged to bring a copy of their evaluation instrument and standards.

Participants will gain:

  • A greater understanding of the Cognitive Coaching maps and tools for the purpose of evaluation.
  • An understanding of how evaluation can support self-directedness.
  • An increased confidence in using evaluation as an opportunity to support growth.
Additional Information: 

Registration includes training, materials, continental breakfast, and lunch.

***Completion of Cognitive Coaching Foundations Seminar (Days 1-8) is NOT required to attend this training. This training is designed to introduce and integrate tools that are learned more extensively in the Foundations Seminar. Those who have completed Days 1-8 will benefit from this training, as a fourth map, Calibrating Conversations is introduced.***
