Unpacking Coaching Webinar
Coaching Conversations: Supporting Teachers to Implement Pyramid Model Practices Equitably
June 9, 2021
3:00 p.m. ET
Duration: 58 min
Coaches work collaboratively with teachers to support them in implementing Pyramid Model practices. Pyramid Model practices are designed to support young children’s development of social-emotional competence including emotional literacy, problem-solving, communicate their wants and needs, and peer relationship skills and to decrease the likelihood they will engage in challenging behavior. How do coaches support teachers to ensure they are using Pyramid Model practices to address the individual needs of each and every child in their classroom? In this webinar, panelists will discuss ways coaches can support teachers to implement Pyramid Model practices equitably.
