Course Information:

Research shows that in-classroom coaching is a powerful way to impact teaching and learning, but few campus professionals claim expertise in social emotional learning. Coaching for Momentum, the brand new playbook and interactive course offered by Momentous Institute is designed to address this gap. 

Join our 6-part series on Coaching for Momentum: A Social Emotional Approach to Classroom Coaching. We will work through five categories of awareness addressed in the playbook to enhance the coach-to-teacher relationship, and to deepen the reflective practice of teachers and those who support them. Ultimately, participants will develop a strong social emotional lens to inform the process of coaching and build a network of collaboration for sustainability.

By learning to coach with an SEL lens, coaches, counselors, principals, assistant principals, school leaders, staff developers, mentors, department chairs and others become better equipped to get traction for momentous outcomes and inspire transformational change and increase their ability to provide strong sustainable support.

What our learners say

This workshop was very helpful and each session had tons of powerful conversations.  I really enjoyed the breakout sessions and the time allowed to discuss the context topic. It helped to hear other's perspectives and their personal experiences.

Such a wealth of information. Really enjoyed this workshop. These sessions are changing how I see things plus building my capacity. I was sad when we only had one more week left!

Everything was very clear. I love the layout of the playbook: Coaching for Momentum. The book is less daunting with the way it is organized; and the information is chunked very well, making it easy for referencing and reading.
