About the event
Working with co-teachers, instructional coaches facilitate teacher growth, leading to higher student achievement. This professional learning and technical assistance series is designed for instructional/academic coaches, lead teachers or administrators to support co-teaching teams to help maximize the potential of educating students in the least restrictive environment. These sessions are intended for school districts in the Heart of Georgia Region participating in East Central GLRS' LRE Continuous Improvement project.

- Less than 5% of teachers understand and implement what they hear and have modeled for them, but with effective coaching and descriptive feedback, the rate of implementation jumps to 95% (Showers and Joyce 2002)
- The most powerful single modification that enhances student achievement is descriptive feedback (Hattie 1992)
- Provide effective strategies and help novice teachers shape those into what works for them and their students; otherwise, they will never learn to think on their own (Jackson 2013)
