After a year of virtual professional development in Instructional Coaching, we eagerly return to a two-day face-to-face Coaching Intensive on November 18 & 19.

However, going virtual has also taught us the importance of ongoing collaboration — so, participants will meet twice virtually for ongoing instructional coaching collaboration, support and feedback during the remainder of the school year.

We are excited to continue to provide training and support to TfT schools around the growing practice of Instructional Coaching. In many of our TfT schools, Instructional Coaching has become a vital support tool for the ongoing development/growth of teaching/learning practices within the TfT classroom.

Our Deep Hope is to grow in confidence, competence, and commitment as instructional coaches that empower others to play their parts in God’s Story.

The learning targets that will guide our time are: 

  • I can increase my competence by exploring resources and tools for instructional coaching. 
  • I can nurture my confidence by adapting, (re)designing, and rehearsing instructional coaching practices.
  • I can grow in my commitment to lead as an instructional coach through the challenges and opportunities of school-wide change.

Over the course of this two day intensive, we will offer two tracks for professional development: 

  • Level 100: For those who are new to Instructional Coaching. 
  • Level 200: For those who have previously attended a TfT Instructional Coaching Intensive (in person or virtual) and wish to deepen their skillset. 

Location: Grace Community School; 3025 University Boulevard; Tyler, Texas

Price per person: $399 (includes refreshments/lunch)

Registration deadline: October 1, 2021

Optional Pre-Intensive Day: Transformational Lesson Design, November 17
In addition to the two day coaching intensive, we are also offering a pre-intensive day to equip and train within a brand-new TfT design tool: Transformational Lesson Design.
Within the context of the core practices of Teaching for Transformation resides the necessity for teachers to design daily and weekly learning plans. In the same way that TfT’s core practices shape both teacher and student, we recognize that the ongoing, daily design of learning practices are equally vital to the formation of peculiar people.
This tool equips teachers to design the daily/weekly learning plans within the context of TfT.
The Transformational Lesson Design framework aims to:
  • identify and name key design elements of transformational lessons
  • provide practical examples and tools that will support teachers as they include these design elements in their daily/weekly lessons
The Deep Hope for this framework is to empower teachers to design transforming lessons for the image bearers of our Creator God who fill our classrooms and long to be invited, nurtured, and empowered to play their part in God’s Story today and for the rest of their lives.  

Join us on this Pre-Intensive day for training on the use of the Transformational Lesson Design Tool. Participants will be equipped to come back to their school and introduce this tool to their colleagues.
Price per person: $79 (includes refreshments/lunch)
