The Center for Research on Education, Diversity & Excellence (CREDE) has worked with the National Education Association to develop a series of videos supporting professional learning Communities. This page contains several segments from those videos describing effective strategies that can be used during peer coaching sessions. Please click on the links to view the videos.
Peer Coaching Videos
Pair up with a partner and start a conversation about a real issue that is currently on your mind. During the conversation, the listener should practice effective communication skills highlighted in the videos above. After three minutes of discussion, switch roles and have the other partner practice the skills. After the second round of discussion, debrief with each other about the practiced skills.
