Salt Lake City, UT (Vocus/PRWEB) January 24, 2011
Corwin and School Improvement Network announce the exciting new online course based on the Corwin best-selling book by Jim Knight, Instructional Coaching: A Partnership Approach to Improving Instruction.
Instructional Coaching is the key to guide coaches, trainers, teacher leaders, principals in creating an environment of trust and partnership with those they mentor. In this interactive course, School Improvement Network and Corwin document three instructional coaches mentored by Jim Knight himself to demonstrate how the key components of instructional coaching increase effective teaching. Participants will embark on the journey of instructional coaching on PD 360 with these instructional coaches as they learn from personal experiences, real classroom observations and feedback.
This exclusive new course from Jim Knight is divided into twelve modules. The modules guide participants through the seven main partnership principles that serve as the foundation for quality instructional coaching. Knight confirms that, “If you have your principles clear, and your principles are important ones for the work you do, then the practices will take care of themselves.”
Every license to Instructional Coaching will include live author interaction via webinars and video segments with Jim Knight, along with 6 months of free access to PD 360, the world’s largest online community of over 600,000 educators. Participants will also have the opportunity to receive three graduate credits from Seattle Pacific University (a fully accredited university) for less than half the cost of other graduate schools.
