One of the hardest things for teachers to do is to inspire their students. Authors and trainers Andi Stix, Ed.D. and Frank Hrbek show teachers how to do just that by adapting proven business and cognitive coaching strategies for classroom use. Whether it is at the elementary, middle, or high school level, and no matter the content area, this training has everything teachers need to fire up students’ imaginations and get them engaged, inspired, and motivated to succeed.
Students in extracurricular activities often have coaches, yet it is students in classrooms who are most in need of the motivation and support that coaches can provide. Teachers will learn how to apply the same methods that professional coaches use, which will help students achieve more in all subjects and at all grade levels. These strategies, which have been used successfully in some of the most diverse classrooms in the country, can help to increase student achievement by:
- Ensuring harmonious group work
- Improving organizational and note-taking skills
- Overcoming academic and emotional roadblocks
- Resolving conflicts, *** and
- Empowering students by allowing them ownership of their work
In addition to the coaching strategies, Dr. Stix’s training provides sample assessment forms, student-teacher dialogues, real-life examples of coaching in action, and a wealth of cross-curricular project ideas.
