Course #: 1825300047; Title: The Coaching and Self-Reflection Tool for Competency in Teaching English Learners; Description:

The Coaching and Self-Reflection Tool for Competency in Teaching English Learners is an interactive learning tool designed to support educators' understanding of the Common Core of Teaching through the lens of effective practice for English learners (ELs). This resource was designed by the CT Strategic English Learner Partnership, a collaboration between the Connecticut State Department of Education (CSDE) and the Regional Educational Services Centers (RESCs) to support all educators in their works with ELs.



The tool is organized by the domains and indicators from the CCT Rubric (2016) and provides:


  • A research base relevant to ELs

  • Examples of highly effective practices with hyperlinks to examples, resources, and videos

  • Sample 'Might sees' describing diverse classroom scenarios of best practices in action

  • Sample questions for coaching and self-reflection


While not intended for evaluative purposes, the tool will assist administrators, coaches, and K-12 classroom educators who service English Learners in collaborative conversations regarding the instructional shifts and rigor inherent in the Connecticut English Language Proficiency (CELP) Standards and best practices in teaching to the diverse cultural and linguistic needs of ELs.



Participants are asked to bring their own laptop or electronic device.
Coffee and tea will be provided. Participants should bring their own lunch.

Sponsored by the RESC Alliance, in partnership with the CSDE.
