This section is intended for instructional coaches, administrators, and other school professionals who regularly consult with teachers about culturally responsive practices, student engagement, and classroom management. Becoming proficient in the Double Check coaching model requires that you develop knowledge and skills in (1) implementing the Double Check structure and procedures and (2) conducting collaborative coaching meetings using motivational interviewing skills. Motivational interviewing is a way of communicating with others that helps elicit talk about making a change. It is a helpful skill to employ when consulting with teachers.
