Model Schools Core Plus

NYS Model Schools logoThe Plus Option is available for Model Schools member districts opting to take advantage of structured, job-embedded instructional technology peer coaching in-district for a cohort of teachers/instructional staff, involving:

  • participant skill acquisition
  • specific lesson development
  • co-teaching, reflection, revision
  • peer sharing/teaching.

Cohorts may be formed at the building or district level and are limited to 8 participants. Model Schools Member Districts have access to this service at an additional fee.

Key Elements of Core Plus

  • Cohort pre-flight planning meeting
  • Skills acquisition: addressing instructional technology skills and concepts that will lead to classroom application
  • Individual planning and lesson development: addressing specific instructional strategies and student needs
  • In-classroom support visits: our role in the classroom might vary based on the scenario, but we will either co-teach, shadow, or assist depending on the situation and directive of the teacher
  • Reflection and Revision: the debriefing conversations and meetings that follow the in classroom support visits
  • Cohort closing: each cohort member shares their learning portfolio with peers and administrators as part of a closing celebration.

Participants have the opportunity to interact with each other and LHRIC staff in an established online community for the duration of the cohort, and produce a short self reflection video to memorialize their own personal learning experience.
