How to Ask the Right Questions as a Growth Coach

Date(s): 4/28/2021 Time: 3:00pm ET Status: Open

A vital piece of ISM’s Faculty Growth and Evaluation Framework is the use of growth coaches—peers and leaders who help teachers achieve their growth goals, with no tie to each individual’s evaluation.

How do great coaches work with their teachers? They start by asking the right questions.

These questions provide space for the teacher to step back and examine their thinking or actions, often helping them see their actions from a different perspective or imagine a new solution to a challenge. Discover how you can help your growth coaches ask the right questions to become successful supporters for your teachers.
