This three-day institute aimed at paraprofessionals (though teachers are certainly welcome to attend) will ensure a smooth transition into the new school year for staff and students alike. Focusing on adult communication and collaboration, with a special lens on families and the school community, attendees will learn to understand student behavior as communication and, sometimes, as a brain-based difference (trauma, executive functioning challenges, etc.). This institute will also focus on how best to support academics in the classroom for complex learners.

Participants will leave with a toolbox that includes:

  • Break systems
  • Reflection tools
  • Practical interventions
  • Data collection techniques and materials
  • Strategies for self-care and stress management
  • Action steps for sharing your learning back at school

TCICP is excited to announce the Inclusive Classrooms Coaching Institute: Level 2! Please join us to look closer at coaching models and inclusive practices. Delving deeper into the topics we discussed each day (Universal Design for Learning (UDL), Co-teaching, Positive Behavior Supports, and Inclusive/Responsive Literacy Instruction), we will build on the work we began during Level 1, including goal setting, coaching conversations and debriefing, and exploring methods and cycles of professional development. At the end of the institute, participants will leave with resources and cycles of professional development tailored for their school.

Please note that Level 1 is a prerequisite for this professional development.

Aimed at educators currently in a coaching role or those who wish to move into such a role, participants learn effective coaching methods to build inclusive classrooms and schools. Participants work with TCICP staff developers to learn a wide variety of practices used with adult learners that are capacity-oriented and inquiry-based. Through the lens of critical inclusivity, participants deepen their understanding of ways to develop coaching relationships, assess classroom environments to inform goal-setting with teachers, create a cycle of coaching, and engage in varied coaching conversations. TCICP’s coaching model is based on localized problem-solving and honors the agency and intellectual skills of teachers in its approach to coaching. Participants leave the institute ready to lead their colleagues toward the goal of ensuring that all students in their school community receive an equitable and inclusive education.

The cost of this institute is $500 per person. If accepted, you will be sent a link to provide payment.
