High-Impact Coaching: Teaching with a Partner; The Coaching Podcast, Ep. 6
Here’s what you need to do before, during, and after you co-teach.
During the process of co-teaching you want to make sure you always follow the plan you worked so hard to create. If you veer from the plan, your teacher might not know what to do, and your goal is to work together! You also want to exercise the tried and true think-aloud. If you can slow your thinking down for the teacher, then they can actually internalize those thought processes and start applying some of that decision making to their own teaching because that’s the nitty gritty of teaching.
After everything is said and done, you have to do the second most important step: debrief. If you don’t debrief, everything you just did was pointless because you’re not giving the teacher anything to walk away with. When you sit down with your teacher, you want to talk about how co-teaching felt and what went great and what was only ok. You also want to review student work together!
Co-teaching is such an amazing way to get back into the classroom and to provide great coaching to your teachers. You can find out more about what you need to do before, during, and after your co-teaching lesson by tuning into Buzzing with Ms. B: The Coaching Podcast Episode 6, and tune in next week to find how to plan collaboratively with teachers.
