1- Divide up into groups of three

Assume the roles of:


Your task is to provide constructive and purposeful feedback to the team member about the issues.

Team Member

Assume an interactive role by questioning and sharing information.


As the observer, remain silent and watch the interaction between the coach and the team member. Make a note of your observations since you will be sharing them with the whole group.

2- Read Scenario

You are assigned to coach the Math department. Coincidentally, they have just received iPads for use in their classroom.

When you arrive at 9:00 a.m., the Math teachers are very busy. You locate the Math department head for an update and they tell you, "We're not doing coaching today.

Time is short. I will teach them how to use the iPads with their lesson."

3- Apply Coaching Model

Take advantage of the Collegial Coaching Model example to help structure your interactions.

If you are familiar with other coaching approaches, make sure to make a mental note of what strategies you are using.

You will need that when debriefing and reflecting.

4- Debrief and Reflect

Observers, before sharing your observations, ask questions:

  • Is the team member teaching what they intended to teach?

  • Is my coach achieving the goals and completing the projects upon which we agreed to focus?

  • Is there a better way to teach this concept, thereby promoting higher achievement by students or more effective integration of technology?
