On-Site Coaching

Research shows that in-person, teacher-focused professional development supports the implementation of new strategies in the classroom and, over time, mastery of these skills. Our team of educational consultants will work closely with you to customize the best ongoing professional development plan to meet your goals and help you stay within your budgetary guidelines.

Great Books coaching is:

  • Individualized—coaching sessions are one-on-one
  • Context-specific—teachers are coached on practices within the context of their own classrooms
  • Focused—coaches work with teachers to engage in deliberate practice of specific skills
  • Sustained—teachers receive coaching over an extended period of time

You can schedule our expert instructors to visit your school and work with students and teachers in their classrooms. Coaching includes:

      • In-classroom coaching, modeling, and co-teaching
      • One-on-one feedback and goal setting
      • Grade-level and team meetings
