Coaching Session Forms

This coaching form can be used when supporting members of the educational team in implementing story-based lessons in special and general education classrooms. The form permits the coach to record the coaching format, instructional arrangement observed, and coaching method/practice implemented. The form provides the coach with targeted areas of support commonly identified during story-based lessons. Finally, the form guides the coach to review previous action steps, identify strengths and areas for growth, provide instruction, and identify both the instructor’s and coaches’ next steps.
