Coaching Through Change - Steve Barkley

Coaching Through Change

Teachers respond differently to the requests or requirements for change that schools might make in curriculum, instructional approaches, assessment, etc. Coaches working through change with teachers need to adjust their approaches and strategies to support, encourage, and provide feedback that best meets the teacher’s stage of implementation.

In the following ten minute video, I describe various teachers’ stages and some thoughts on coaches’ responses, such as:

  • Unwilling
  • Unaware
  • Getting Ready
  • Started
  • Developing


Let me know what thoughts or questions arise.
