  • An introduction during which an overview of the conference or lesson is provided and viewing points are suggested.  You may be asked to look for specific coaching language and/or to look for examples of effective teaching practices.
  • A coach and teacher conference or classroom lesson
  • A debrief where the key points of the conference or classroom lesson are discussed
  • A labeled version that provides on-screen visual aids to help you focus on the coaching language and effective practices that were used in the conference or classroom lesson
