Welcome to the Introduction to the Coaching to Win: Giving Your Best for Your Teachers! In this course, we will be discussing the crucial role that instructional leaders play as coaches to teachers and staff members. How, then, can we provide support for those in our charge?

- Reflect on personal leadership growth
The course format is asynchronous in nature, meaning you complete the course at your own pace. A new module unlocks each week for 5 weeks,but only after you have completed the previous module. You’ll be able to look back at previous modules any time you’d like, and of course you can pause and re-watch any portions of the videos as needed. The video must be watched in its entirety for the quiz to unlock.
All materials referenced in this course are in the Course Materials folder.
Each week, you’ll view the module video and then complete a module quiz and extended response. Some weeks, you’ll be uploading an assignment as well, such as a completed lesson plan. You’ll upload your Word (.doc) file as your last action in the quiz for weeks where assignments are due. Only one document can be uploaded, so on weeks when more than one template is used, combine them into one document for upload.
Note that you also can’t move on until at least an 80% is achieved on the quiz, and note that your extended response will be reviewed by the facilitator. A facilitator dashboard keeps us updated on your progress, and if you’re taking the course as part of your agency’s professional development requirements, your agency will be informed of your status on a regular basis.
