The planning conversation is when the teacher and principal/instructional coach/teaching peer collaborate and focus on the student-learning priorities established through the learner needs, core curriculum, and school improvement goals. In this planning conversation, Zahidee Marcano, the teacher, and Karen Smith, the Kindergarten Coach, collaboratively focus on priorities of the lesson plan that the coach will be observing/supporting (see Zahidee’s Classroom) and the unique goals that Zahidee has for supporting the social and cognitive learning needs of her students. Zahidee highlights how the whole group Seahorse literacy lesson will be extended into Journaling, learning centers, choice centers and independent work. Zahidee and Karen also discuss how Zahidee organizes instruction priorities based on the Dual Language Kindergarten Curriculum Plan in order to support students (and their families) to be successful learners.
