4. Regular coaching sessions over time
Improving teaching takes time, and it is important for the teacher being coached to be able to apply new ideas to a class and then discuss the impact of this with their coach. Dr Warren typically works with a teacher for several months to embed change and follow up on results. You can see in The Doon School case studies how the teachers were able to change aspects of their practice, from questioning to welcoming students, to even where they stood in the classroom… and then reflect on the impact with Dr Warren.
“I see huge benefit from Dr Warren observing my classes and helping me to notice things which could easily be ignored in the moment-by-moment decision-making.”
