The Hidden Sparks Internal Coach Program is designed to support a school’s long term ability to address the needs of struggling learners by providing training to selected faculty members to be resident Hidden Sparks coaches – trained in understanding and teaching to diverse learning styles, behavior management, assessment of children with learning differences, and classroom centered coaching. Training takes place in Spring, 2012 so that Internal Coaches can begin coaching in their schools during the 2012-13 school year.
Similar to the Hidden Sparks External Coach Program, these Internal Coaches develop the expertise to become the resident experts on diverse learners. They receive training to facilitate monthly class-level meetings, offer workshops on diverse learning styles, and provide coaching to individual faculty members in order to identify specific learning strategies for students struggling in school.
