EMWP Literacy Coaching Institute

Julia Keider

EMWP has already trained over 40 coaches in less than nine months for public and charter schools across Michigan, and we hope to continue the momentum with long-term supports for a school like yours!

EMWP continues to invest in the development of coaches to support and sustain the literacy development of teachers and their students. The Literacy Coaching Institutes are designed to build collaboration with teachers, coaches, administrators, and educational professionals who use coaching strategies to engage learners in metacognitive conversations.

Here are the highlights of the trainings currently being offered:

EMWP Basic Literacy Coaching Institute

• Explore the importance of establishing working relationships and coaching agreements
• Observe demonstrations of coach-the-teacher and coach-the-coach sessions, with a focus on metacognition
• Practice literacy protocols that are “ready-to-use” for teachers in the classroom and coaches for PD
• Discuss current issues coaches face working in Michigan’s schools as well as how to engage in supports for coaches
• Develop routines embedded in coaching mindsets and frameworks

EMWP Advanced Literacy Coaching Institute
