Instructional Coaches SIG

The Instructional Coaches Special Interest Group (SIG) is for PreK-12 educators whose responsibilities include SEI coaching, ESL coaching, and/or professional development aimed at meeting the needs of English Learners.

The goal of the Instructional Coaches SIG is to facilitate collaboration of instructional coaches across Massachusetts in order to improve coaching systems and strategies that support General Education and ESL teachers in meeting the needs of English Learners. 

Some of our activities include:

  • Sharing resources such as observation forms, meeting protocols, and coaching templates.
  • Exploring topics such as effective coaching cycles, building trusting relationships, defining and managing coaching responsibilities, etc.

Meetings are open to current MATSOL Members at no charge. 

  • Non-Members: Join MATSOL and choose "Instructional Coaches" as a special interest group.
  • Members: Update your member profile and choose "Instructional Coaches" as a special interest group.

The Instructional Coaches SIG E-List is open to current MATSOL members. Members will be automatically subscribed to the E-list when they choose the Instructional Coaches SIG in registration. If you'd like to join this E-list manually, please read instructions for subscribing to an E-List.
