The Impact Cycle Session 1 - Individual Virtual Session

Presented by Michelle Harris

Based on The Impact Cycle (2017) by Jim Knight, this workshop describes the coaching cycle proposed for instructional coaches. All teachers, schools, and classrooms face their own unique challenges. An established process for guiding the coaching experience ensures that instructional coaches have all of the tools they need to help teachers set and achieve their goals. The Impact Cycle–the product of 20 years of ICG research, (see instructionalcoaching.com/research)– provides a framework for any coaching scenario. Participants in this workshop will learn why the cycle is successful, and gain experience using it through examples and guided exercises.   Participants will:
  • Identify stage and the necessity of getting a clear picture of classroom reality. The use and importance of video is highlighted, along with processes that make the use of video more effective.
  • Participants view a teacher and coach use video to get a clear picture of reality.  Participants discuss with each other the importance of getting a clear picture of reality.
  • Facilitator describes PEERS goals as the next element of Identify and how they connect to SMART goals.

At the end of the training session, participants will set a  goal that will be followed-up on in the Impact Cycle - Session 2 in January.

Participants will receive a copy of The Impact Cycle and The Reflection Guide to The Impact Cycle.
