SPED 590 Peer Coaching Seminar: An Online Course about Peer Coaching.
Askvig, Brent A.; Garnes, Lori
This manual presents an online course about peer coaching derived from the Interactive Peer Coaching/Mentoring (IPCM) Project, a program designed to prepare teachers of students with severe behavioral disorders residing in a rural, remote area in North Dakota. The IPCM project was conducted from July 1997 through July 2000 and developed an interdisciplinary program of courses that met North Dakota certification standards and university program standards. Since many of the trainees lived some distance from the university, it was necessary to develop an Internet-based peer coaching seminar. This manual presents student outcomes, assignments, reading, and grading guidelines in a syllabus. Then, general lessons are presented that address: (1) peer coaching terms and definitions; (2) the peer coaching model; (3) targeting effective teaching behaviors; (4) the ten-step peer coaching process, steps 1-6; (5) the ten-step peer coaching process, steps 7-10; (6) using the data to change your teaching behavior; and (7) using peer coaching. Each lesson includes objectives, assignments, and a summary. The entire set of Web pages is presented as a guide for future reference. (CR)
