Hall-Woodward's approach to Instructional Coaching:Instructional Facilitators (IF) facilitate effective instruction delivery of the NC Standard Course of Study by coaching teachers with classroom management, pedagogy, and content knowledge. They lead teachers in focused academic conversations to improve classroom instruction and student learning. IFs organizes, analyzes, and reports district, school, and classroom data to promote student achievement. They prepare and facilitate weekly Professional Learning Teams (PLTs) through specific structured conversation protocols including resources, assessments, data, and proven outcomes. Where they assist teachers with data analysis of student work that results in the identification of students in need of interventions, they then develop an action plan for corrective instruction. Instructional Facilitators lead professional development workshops and schedule outside professionals for content-specific development, including necessary attendance tracking for the district.
