Making Change is Hard. We Can Help.
Coaching is the act of listening and reflecting back to the individual what is being said and helping the individual find her/his own solutions to the challenges leaders face. Our Instructional, Leadership, and School Coaches provide an objective set of eyes and hands to support your change goals, using tools and strategies rooted in the most up-to-date research and best practices around school change and adult learning. Whether you’re trying to implement a single innovation or your engaging in large scale restructuring, we have coaches who have the skills and experience to help you avoid the pitfalls and missteps that can set your efforts back years. Let us help you develop a cohesive course action based on not only your specific needs, but also our experience with broad-based school change.

Coaching for Teachers & Leaders
ACSR offers a complete range of professional development services that provide on-going support for teacher improvement and growth. Job embedded professional learning opportunities focus on specific areas of school improvement efforts providing instruction, modeling, and feedback to teachers as they gain new skills. Working one-on-one with your teachers in their classrooms, we provide relationship based, customized support for improving pedagogy.
Leadership Coaching is based upon a similarly collegial relationship between a current school leader and a personal coach with experience and knowledge regarding educational leadership. School leaders have many tasks and coaching can provide the leader with an unbiased view as well as questions that need to be answered in order to maintain a positive direction in the school.
We can only support a limited number of schools in this effort. Contact our office for more information at ACSR@antiochne.edu or 603-283-2302

Inquiry Driven Science
We are proud to announce that the Inquiry Driven Science Institute is now available using our school coaching model. Through a year-long workshop and coaching support, we can help your teachers learn to build critical thinking, creative thinking, problem solving, and collaboration skills along side the acquisition of science content knowledge. Teachers will study and develop science curricula based on student centered, experiential, problem based learning. This curricula will utilize the most rigorous science domain frameworks across the disciplines (earth, life, and physical sciences) including the Next Generation Science Standards and the Common Core State Standards. They will explore the integration of experiential, problem-based, collaborative, and standards-driven learning methodologies, focusing on the role of teacher in designing curriculum, guiding student understanding, and assessing performance. Teachers will also develop the capacities to build and advance their classrooms as dynamic, collaborative, science learning communities.
