Powerful Comprehensive Approach

Why Coaching?

Coaching is a form of professional learning within classrooms that helps teachers develop strong plans, obtain feedback, refine their practices, and examine results. Research shows that strong coaching can make a significant difference for teacher practice and student outcomes.  JP's School Improvement Specialists are all successful former classroom teachers with a proven track record of coaching excellence.  "One-shot" and "one-size fits all" professional development is ineffective.  

 

The chart below is one example of how JP coaching can help increase teacher effectiveness and student performance.

6 Scaffolding Strategies to Use With Your Students

 

Support every student by breaking learning up into chunks and providing a concrete structure for each.

 

What’s the opposite of scaffolding a lesson? Saying to students, “Read this nine-page science article, write a detailed essay on the topic it explores, and turn it in by Wednesday.” Yikes—no safety net, no parachute, no scaffolding—they’re just left blowing in the wind.

Let’s start by agreeing that scaffolding a lesson and differentiating instruction are two different things. Scaffolding is breaking up the learning into chunks and then providing a tool, or structure, with each chunk. When scaffolding reading, for example, you might preview the text and discuss key vocabulary, or chunk the text and then read and discuss as you go. With differentiation, you might give a child an entirely different piece of text to read, or shorten the text or alter it, and/or modify the writing assignment that follows.

In many cases, collaboration is proving to be the key to student success

Rural schools and districts are viewing their location as an asset — not an obstacle — to providing students with a highly engaging education that prepares them for college and a career.

“We’re really capitalizing on the strengths of the local area,” says Nate McClennen, the vice president of education and innovation for Teton Science Schools, a nonprofit organization based in Jackson, WY. “We try to imagine a curriculum that emerges from the place.”
