37. Traffic Light Reflection and Goal Setting
I love simplicity. And I love patterns. My mind seems to work in chart form, mentally creating lists, boxes and bullets and categories of thinking. Some might call it a Type A personality. I call it streamlined and organized. So when I find a coaching tool that is both simple AND patterned, I am all in. Listen to today's episode and explore how to use the traffic light as a perfect template for reflection and goal setting.  You’ll find a transcribed version of this podcast and links to all the resources mentioned here in this week's accompanying blog post.  If you like what you hear, be sure to subscribe to The Coaching Sketchnote Book website and email list!

36. Launch Book Study Conversation with Social Media Sparks
I’ll admit there has been more than one occasion where I eagerly open a book club conversation only to hear silence.

35. From Reactive to Proactive Coaching with Launching Pads
It’s safe to say that 2020 has been a complex, challenging, and innovative year. As instructional coaches, we reacted to whatever situation we found ourselves in and tried to make the best of it, never imagining we’d still find ourselves coaching through a global pandemic nine months later. But now, we find ourselves wishing to return to what our coaching used to be: proactive support. Listen to today’s episode for one easy way to take back control of your coaching with launching pads.

34. Never Again: A New Way to Create Teaching Resolutions
So much of our work as coaches is about thinking forward, about making instructional change to better support students. We plan for professional learning, we collaborate with teachers in the classroom and we cultivate learning communities to sustain our work. We are constantly setting goals and making professional plans that often add ideas, concepts, practices or strategies to our already full plates. But what if we decided that the best next step for our professional learning was to let go of something instead? Listen to today’s episode on how to do just that.

33. Coaching for Self-Care: The Challenge
I have had many conversations with fellow literacy coaches on the importance of lifelong learning and the impact it can have on our coaching. In my experience, teachers who embrace a lifelong learning mindset listen, think, act, teach and lead differently. They are enthusiastic learners and look forward to entering the classroom. They embrace professional learning opportunities and have a positive attitude about new ideas and initiatives. They look forward to collaborating with others around instruction and practice and make connections to the classroom. Over time, I have realized while some might be born with this lifelong-learning mindset, it is something that we must consciously embrace and cultivate. And I’ve got a few ideas on how we can do just that. Listen in!
