    Learn and Practice the Powerful and Proven Kagan Coaching Approach

    Kagan coaching is a breakthrough approach to enhancing the full range of teaching skills. Through working with thousands of teachers, Kagan has developed a revolutionary coaching method.

    Why Is Kagan Instructional Coaching Different?

    Rather than giving feedback out of context after a lesson, Kagan Coaching offers specific and immediate feedback as teachers teach. Kagan Coaching improves instruction, management, discipline and curriculum delivery.

    This is not an intrusive model of coaching because when a teacher is utilising Kagan stucures, students are working in teams. This gives the Kagan coach the opportunity to acknowledge the positives and provide a correction while students are working. The neeed corrections are made and everyone wins!

    In every school that has adopted Kagan Coaching we have seen dramatic gains in student achievement.

    Rave Reviews from Participants

    “Excellent! I leave here with ideas and materials I can put in use immediately. I have not attended any seminar that has been as worthwhile. I would highly recommend it to everyone in and educational leadership role”. John, Principal, WA

    Reading Between the Lines – Develop Deep Thinking While Reading in Every Subject

    Today’s standards demand students think more deeply about more complex texts and support their thinking with evidence from the text. Consequently, students are expected to deal with and understand authors’ ideas, not just the information stated directly in the text. This workshop provides you with simple, concrete activities and engaging structures that guide students to actively interact with texts – making the complex inferential process a habit of mind for all students.

    Kagan coaching is a breakthrough approach to enhancing the full range of teaching skills. Through working with thousands of teachers, Kagan has developed a revolutionary coaching method.

    Why Is Kagan Instructional Coaching Different?

    Rather than giving feedback out of context after a lesson, Kagan Coaching offers specific and immediate feedback as teachers teach. Kagan Coaching improves instruction, management, discipline and curriculum delivery.

    This is not an intrusive model of coaching because when a teacher is utilising Kagan stucures, students are working in teams. This gives the Kagan coach the opportunity to acknowledge the positives and provide a correction while students are working. The neeed corrections are made and everyone wins!

    In every school that has adopted Kagan Coaching we have seen dramatic gains in student achievement.

    Rave Reviews from Participants

    “Excellent! I leave here with ideas and materials I can put in use immediately. I have not attended any seminar that has been as worthwhile. I would highly recommend it to everyone in and educational leadership role”. John, Principal, WA
