Question Detail

What are some good ways to keep a scattered teacher on-track during a coaching conversation? I'm also wondering about positive ways to help a teacher see the difference between what they are doing and the concrete strategy you are suggesting that they implement. Many of my teachers indicate understanding, but really struggle with implementation.

      You could also focus the conversation around the specific parts of the lesson (chronologically), e.g. "what did you notice during....." to stay on track. Another thing to try is for you to think of 1-2 points/ideas/areas to provide feedback after each session and then focus your notes during your observation on these points.
