results you can expect

~10 Newly engaged students and 3 pedagogies mastered or enhanced

Substantial Growth

This commonly translates into 10 or more  previously disengaged students who now follow directions, execute assigned tasks, and participate in questioning. Disengagement is marked by the number of students exhibiting any behaviors outside of the instructions given by a teacher, e.g. disrupting other students, not working on classwork, not giving attention to the teacher.

Personalized feedback given via video calls

Teaching practice & student outcomes grow

After being matched to a coach, participating teachers record a clip of their classroom instruction. The teachers share the recorded instruction with their coach who observes the video and provides tailored feedback via skype. This recording, upload, and feedback process repeats twice a week, for 6 consecutive weeks. This dosage facilitates robust growth as teachers receive enough direct feedback to implement new strategies with fidelity. Teachers can use their smart phones to record instruction or we can provide a recording device for them.

We have more than 20 highly qualified coaches that hail from public and charter schools from across the nation. All of our coaches go through a vetting process in which they watch videos of instruction and coach the EdConnective team as if they were conducting a real coaching experience. We pick coaches who have an exceptional ability to collect objective data during observations. Furthermore, we select coaches on their ability to provide bite-sized, actionable feedback.

"EdConnective added immense value to my teaching practice and ultimately to my students.  While watching yourself on video can seem daunting at first, it has allowed me and my EdConnective coach to reflect on areas where I am doing well in the classroom and where I can improve.  Many times in education, it might feel like people are always telling you to simply 'work harder' or that 'you're teaching this wrong.' The best part is feedback at EdConnective is not judgmental or vague, rather it is an accurate statement of facts of what occurred in the video of my classroom with actionable steps and advice on how to improve.  My coach is a brilliant educator with over 11 years of experience in education. Her advice truly changed my teaching for the better, which of course means my students are improving and learning more as well.  And that is what education is all about." 
 
"Beginning teachers often spend more time planning and perfecting a lesson than we do reflecting on our execution of them. With the help of my instructional coach I was able to balance the two to become a more effective teacher in the classroom. Once I began to implement my coach's feedback, I saw an improvement in students academically and behaviorally. Seeing the results of my coach's feedback was powerful. It made teaching even more rewarding than it already is.

coaching model

DATA DRIVEN OBSERVATIONS & ACTIONABLE FEEDBACK 

EdConnective takes each teacher through a dynamic coaching process grounded in best practices from the highest performing school networks across the nation. Our coaches carry out objective observations that illuminate what students are doing at various moments of instruction. Numbers and percentages of student outcomes and teacher practices are recorded during the observations that provide a data-driven baseline for coaching to begin. Next, coaches provide bite-sized pedagogies inspired by Doug Lemov's Teach Like A Champion that teachers practice and implement during each week of the coaching process. Lastly, the extent to which student outcomes and teacher practice grows each week is measured to highlight tangible results.
