[1.0]
This course is designed to prepare participants to work with student leaders, new teachers, and/or colleagues as they plan effective literacy practices. Using a peer coaching/mentor model, participants will work with a teacher who would like to learn or refine a literacy practice. Through observation, modeling, co-teaching, and preparatory and debriefing conversations, participants observe, record and analyze the content and processes involved in coaching interactions. These experiences will enable participants to work more effectively with colleagues through regular conversations, discussions, and consultations about learners, literacy theory and practice, assessment, and instruction.
