Coaching in the classroom (Paris)

Rating: 0/5

School coaching as a field and as a process can play a key role in the social-emotional learning of young people. The term ‘school coaching’ or ‘coaching in education’ has been used loosely with a generally accepted definition as yet to be agreed on. School coaching has been defined as a “one-to-one conversation focused on the enhancement of learning and development through increasing self-awareness and a sense of personal responsibility where the coach facilitates the self-directed learning of the coachee through questioning, active listening and appropriate challenge in a supportive and encouraging climate”.
Teacher coaching in schools takes various forms, but is commonly conceived as a means of providing personalized professional support to teachers through discussion about their practice. Coaching takes time to organise and facilitate within any organisation, and as time is precious in all schools it is important that coaching, where used, works to maximum effect.
