The IFL has an array of tools specifically designed for instructional leaders to assist them to plan and evaluate instructional initiatives squarely focused on the instructional core.
The IFL also offers coaching support for senior administrators around instructional problems of practice.
Our most customized service, this on-site coaching occurs with individuals or small groups. No matter the size of the problem, from a need for talk in pre-K classrooms to revising curriculum to support 21st century standards, we work with senior leaders to refine their craft and amplify their efforts to be even more organized and effective.
Our coaching supports leaders to do such things as:
- develop and articulate a common vision for high quality instruction in the content areas;
- develop and implement system-wide approaches to improve the quality of instruction in the content areas;
- align instructional and assessment initiatives and professional development to the district’s vision of high quality instruction in the content areas;
- collect and use multiple forms of data to inform instructional decisions and policies, develop professional learning systems, and evaluate the effectiveness of instructional and assessment initiatives; and
- Conduct curriculum and program reviews for alignment to 21st century standards, best
practices in the content areas, and the district’s vision of high quality instruction.
Below is a sampling of the types of tools we have in each category.
