This product consists of FOUR Beginning of the Year forms and activities that instructional coaches need to begin their year. Surveys, organizational binder, weekly check-ins and editable coaching meeting slides and menus are all included.
Instructional Coaching Weekly Check Ins and Reflections
Surveys are an excellent way to check in with your teachers. Giving them a weekly
opportunity to answer a few simple questions will help them build comfort in knowing
you are there to help them. It also gives them a regular chance to reflect. Use the
printable or digital surveys to check in with your teachers weekly. You might only check
in with a few teachers some weeks, or you might choose to use these with the teachers you don’t get to see regularly via a coaching cycle meeting. They are adaptable so that you can make them work in your environment.
This product includes printable & digital:
Half Page/4 Question Weekly Check Ins for the ENTIRE YEAR
Instructional Coaching Menus and Slides
This resource has instructional coaching menus using our framework “The Five H’s: A Menu of Coaching Services.” The first H shows how coaches provide help for teachers. The following four H’s represent the different ways in which coaches can provide support. Teachers can use this menu as a guide for how to best ask for help based on where they feel they fit into this framework. This slide is editable to ensure the wording aligns with your school’s approach to coaching.

Instructional Coaching Surveys for Teacher Feedback and Coach Reflection
One unifying trait among instructional coaches is that they never stop learning and are always striving to figure out ways to help others. Educators who end up in coaching roles tend to be those who demonstrate a strong desire to always improve and to share their knowledge with others. Furthermore, they are people who earn the trust of others and always put students first. Are you measuring up to the job? What proof do you have? One way to answer these questions is to ask your teachers. Regularly. And get in the habit of asking yourself.
According to ASCD, there are seven qualities an instructional coach should have. These include the ability to build relationships, remain student-focused, make data-informed decisions, questions without judgment, maintain knowledge of high-impact instructional practices, take risks, and stay current on best practices (ASCD, 2018, Seven Qualities of an Instructional Coach). I have added one more: the ability to impact teacher growth. These eight categories reflect the themes we should all be looking for in our performances as coaches.
This product includes:
a survey for the fall, winter, and spring
a two-sided survey to give teachers asking them to provide their names
a two-sided survey to give teachers that are completely anonymous
a self-survey that measures the same components as the teachers
a self-reflection form used to synthesize all the data received from the teacher surveys and self-surveys
The forms for you (the coach) have blue accents so they are not easily mixed up with the teacher forms (which have black insects … more efficient for printing larger quantities). They are all also available in Google Forms versions.
