CLASS® Group Coaching (MMCI) Preschool Training (In-Person)
What is CLASS Group Coaching?
CLASS Group Coaching is a coach training and teacher professional development program designed to help teachers improve their quality of teaching. We currently offer the program at the Infant/Toddler and Pre-K age levels.
Who do we recommend CLASS Group Coaching for?
We recommend this program for organizations that are looking to build foundational CLASS knowledge throughout their teacher population. This program is also recommended for organizations looking to develop a coaching structure to support teacher growth in their organization.
What do teachers do?
Teachers attend a series of 12 two-hour, face-to-face Tuesday sessions led by a coach. In these sessions, teachers will:
- learn the importance of effective teaching
- get to know each of the CLASS domains and dimensions of teaching
- get to see what each dimension looks like in a classroom
- plan to practice effective teaching
Between each session, teachers will practice effective teaching in their classroom and engage with online resources to deepen their learning of the CLASS domains and dimensions.
When teachers return to each session, they will reflect on their practice with their coach and peers in a group discussion. This helps teachers hold one another accountable to practice between sessions and allows them to learn from each other's experiences.
This is an IN-PERSON, Face-to-Face Training.
The class will start promptly at 6:30 PM. Please arrive a few minutes before the start of the class.
How is the content structured?
The program begins with an introductory session in which the teachers develop rapport, learn what CLASS is, and get an introduction to the CLASS domains of effective teaching.
