Coaches, are you searching for the perfect way to keep track of what you do each day?
If you are like most coaches, the answer is YES! But how do you do it?
Over the last few years, I have seen a variety of methods for keeping track of teacher and staff interactions, and where they are all good, each of them seems to have their good and bad points.
So, what do you do?
A few years ago, I created a simple Daily Teacher Interaction Tracker using Google Forms, and believe me … it saved me a ton of time each day AND it provided me, my digital learning team, and my principal the data that we needed to support our teachers and students.
What is a Daily Teacher Interaction Tracking System?
A Daily Teacher Interaction Tracking System is a tool that coaches use every day … in fact, several times a day to account not just for the work that they do with teachers, but what type of work they do.
Sample questions include:
- Type of Coaching
- Time Spent with Teacher
- Topics Covered
- Follow Up Topics
By having and using a tool such as a Daily Teacher Interaction Tracking System, you can quickly analyze the data and know which staff members need additional information, or what topics you might want to build Professional Development around.
How Do You Create a Daily Teacher Interaction Tracking System?
Luckily for you, we have two ways that you can create a Daily Teacher Interaction Tracking System for yourself or for your school district. Each has its own merits and they are each designed to help you save time and have the right tools, (free tools) to give you the information you need in your classrooms.
Method 1: Create Your Own Daily Teacher Interaction Tracking System
To help get you started, I have created a short video as part of our Tech Coach Weekly Video series to help you learn more about how to use Google Forms to keep track of teacher interactions.
