Kent ISD’s K-12 LCN – B Professional Learning Network Meeting

Tuesday, February 3, 2015 8:00 – 3:00

How Can I Communicate Well?

A good deal of the work done by teacher-leaders and coaches is verbal. They are frequently in conversation one-on-one and with groups. Today’s learning is designed to explore the various roles of teacher-leaders/coaches and to develop communication skills that support positive relationships with colleagues to achieve desired outcomes for student learning. Feedback from our group indicated a desire for an opportunity to engage in thinking on literacy topics, so a Literacy Learning Conversation Café will be offered in the afternoon.   We look forward to connecting with you next week. Bring your copy of the Cathy Toll book: The Literacy Coach’s Survival Guide.
