As a Literacy Coach are you looking for something to add to your coaching observation forms? Here is a great literacy walkthrough to share with teachers after an observation. This form highlights the essentials of classroom literacy instruction and presents you with an avenue to improve teacher expertise. It can be used to provide teacher feedback, teacher reflection on current practices, or offers the opportunity to guide the debriefing session after an observation.
The essential school-wide practices listed; focus on research-based instructional practices and can be used in a variety of settings for elementary children. I have used this walkthrough form after visits to the classroom and it provides specific feedback for teacher reflection and incorporates the Balanced Literacy Components and Workshop Model.
