Coaching Tool - Tehama County Science and Environmental Engineering for Secondary Teachers (SEES)
Coaches in Tehama County’s SEES partnership use the Coaching: Goals, Planning and Results Form to review student and teacher learning goals. The form includes NGSS Performance Expectations, Science and Engineering Practices, Cross Cutting Concepts, Engineering Disciplinary Core Ideas, and how technology will be integrated.
Coaches work with the teachers in developing these goals for the teacher and for students in a preconference and review the results after the lesson. Student goals can be both the quality of discussions and/or a product. The teacher goals center around how the lesson is taught. For example, how the teacher integrates SEPs into the lesson. The last part of the form is designed to guide coach/teacher conversations about the strengths of the lesson as well as any challenges that emerged. This, in turn, leads to the development of goals for the next lesson and any additional support needed to reach these goals. Public Works reviews each of the coaches’ forms and uses a Coaching Summary Form to generate frequencies of SEPs, CCCs, Engineering DCIs, and Technology.
