LC150 - Best Practices in Supervising and Coaching CTE Teachers

In the quest to make teacher evaluations more meaningful, leaders need to flip the mindset concerning their role in teacher evaluations. Leaders need to look at the evaluation process and start to understand that their role should move from being an evaluator to being a coach. This course will discuss the best practices in both supervision (formal evaluation and management) of career and technical education (CTE) teachers and the purpose and use of instructional coaching in developing the content knowledge and pedagogical skills of CTE teachers. The focus of the course will be on exploring how school leaders can help teachers realize where they are and where they can go if they continue to grow in their abilities as a teacher, colleague, and leader.
