Group Coaching Approach
Group Coaching is an effective and efficient way to deliver Practice-Based Coaching on Pyramid Model Practices in a group context. Group Coaching meetings are facilitated by a coach and are a way for teachers to learn about social-emotional teaching practices, plan to implement practices, share video, reflect, and provide feedback to peers on their use of practices.
This Group Coaching Package includes group coaching materials and resources in a ready-to-use format. Within the group coaching package, coaches can access materials and resources to facilitate 8 group coaching meetings. The group meetings are organized by a social-emotional competency area, with each competency area being covered across two meetings. For each competency area, the first group meeting introduces the practices related to the social-emotional competency area and the second group meeting reviews what participants tried in their classrooms.
- Friendship Skills
- Emotional Literacy
- Self-Regulation and Anger Management
- Problem Solving
