LVUSD is excited to be offering two cohorts of the internationally-renowned
Cognitive Coaching training in the 2020-21 school year.
The mission of Cognitive Coaching is to produce self-directed persons with the
cognitive capacity for excellence both independently and as members of a
community. Research indicates that teaching is a complex intellectual activity and
that 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 an internationally-recognized research-based model that capitalizes upon and enhances teachers’ cognitive processes.
In the eight-day Seminars, participants learn how to:
develop trust and rapport
develop an identity as a mediator of thinking
utilize conversation structures for planning, reflecting and problem resolving
develop teachers’ autonomy and sense of community
develop higher levels of efficacy, consciousness, craftsmanship, flexibility and interdependence
apply four support functions: coaching, evaluating, consulting, collaborating
utilize the coaching tools of pausing, paraphrasing, and posing questions
distinguish among the five forms of feedback
use data to mediate thinking
