Katedralskolan - College in Linköping, Sweden
The assignment was to train the teachers in the skills of Classroom Observation and Coaching Feedback.
As part of the school's development plan, teachers will visit other teachers lessons and give feedback. What the teachers wanted to know was HOW to give feedback in a coach-like way, and how to get into a trusting relationship with a colleague in order to be observed.
We taught them these tools
As a long-term process, that holds the essential stages of the developing Coach / Teacher relationship.
For all the meetings, so that a clear picture and plan evolved.
To make the goals clearer.
We showed two films, gave several live demonstrations of the tools in action, and most importantly, gave plenty of time for the teachers to practice the conversations in threes, rotating the roles of Teacher, Coach and Observer.

The talks gave the most, to understand how to ask open-ended questions to colleagues questions that can get them to think about, for example, its strategy to help students understand something.
