Instruction coaching: A Partnership Approach to Improving Instruction

Instructional coaching incorporates skills, practices and in-depth knowledge that helps ensure "every student receives excellent instruction every day in every class." This approach promotes collaboration between teachers and their coaches so they can choose and implement research-based interventions to help students learn more effectively.

To ensure success, instructional coaches need deep knowledge and skills in at least six essential domains: (1) adult learning (2) an instructional coaching cycle, (3) using video recordings to gather data, (4) instructional practices described in an instructional playbook, (5) communication skills, and (6) leadership skills.

Based on the content in Jim Knights books on this topic, and especially his new book The Impact Cycle, participants will learn many new skills, stretch their thinking and gain confidence in these areas. This session is a starting point for current, new and aspiring administrators, consultants, teacher coaches and all those who work to support teachers in improving their practice.


Canadian born, Jim Knight, has spent more than two decades studying and presenting workshops on the topics of professional learning, effective teaching, and instructional coaching. He has a Ph.D. in Education from the University of Kansas and has won several university teaching, innovation, and service awards. He is the President of the Instructional Coaching Group and The Impact Research Lab, and a Research Associate at the University of Kansas Center for Research on Learning. He lived for a short time in Winnipeg.

Jims book Instructional Coaching: A Partnership Approach to Improving Instruction (Corwin, 2007) popularized the idea of instruction coaching. His other books include Unmistakable Impact: A Partnership Approach to Dramatically Improving Instruction (2011), High-Impact Instruction: A Framework or Great Teaching (Corwin, 2013), Focus on Teaching: Using Video for High-Impact Instruction (Corwin, 2014), and Better Conversations: Coaching Ourselves to be More Credible, Caring, and Connected. His newest book, The Impact Cycle, will be released in early 2017.

Jims articles have appeared in journals such as "The Journal of Staff Development," "Principal Leadership," "The School Administrator," "Kappan," and "Educational Leadership."
