EDE 6556 Coaching for Student Learning
EDE 6556: Coaching for Student Learning (Fall 2013)
This course prepares effective coaches for facilitating preservice and inservice educator learning with a specific focus on PK-6 student learning. Within this course, the student develops an understanding of student-centered, evidence based coaching for student learning and acquires the knowledge, skills, abilities needed to provide coaching to preservice and inservice teachers. This course was specially modified for a unique pilot program to develop teacher leaders as effective coaches for facilitating preservice and inservice educator learning at Mort Elementary. It was the first course taught in the Mort Teacher Leader Academy. Although a semester in length, this course, along with EDE 6486 Teacher Research For Student Learning, was conceptualized as a yearlong course. This course is taught onsite at the elementary school and assumes the academic calendar of the school, as opposed to the university.
