The Power of Reflection
Our Department of Instructional Innovation in Berwyn South District 100 follows Jim Knight’s coaching model The Impact Cycle. Through the work in our department last year, a critical component was to share the impact our instructional coaches were having in the classroom as they partnered with classroom teachers. As part of our journey last year, our team was challenged with sharing their story with our district and school community by using a storytelling arch of their partnership. Coaches were given a template of sentence stems to guide their story. In the example here, our instructional coach, Ms. Liz Given partnered with one of our second grade teachers, Ms. Jenna Jungels. Using the Keynote template, they created a movie which discusses their partnership, their instructional goals, strategies, the impact on student learning, and their final reflection. This powerful storytelling prompt allowed an opportunity for our partnership to have a deep reflective conversation on their journey together and how their strategic planning fostered success for all of their students.
