Coaching increases reading age by 1 year and 7 months (in just 6 x 15 minutes)
What's was the coachee/situation like BEFORE the coaching?
What EXACTLY did you do?
Met weekly for 15 minute coaching sessions for 6 weeks
On the first session I spoke to the coachee about his reading age being below his chronological age by 2 years, and the fact that he had not met his reading target. I showed him the data which gave me that information.
The focus area was to reach his target and to improve his reading age during the coaching cycle. He showed great commitment and gave some great answers as I worked through the Coaching Toolkit with him (which was given to me as part of my coaching in schools training).
His focus was to improve his reading age during the 6 week coaching cycle.
His goal was to read for 20 minutes per day.
At our second coaching session he had finished reading 2 books (he had not previously read any at all this school year!) He’d also passed the online quizzes on them – one at 60% and one at 100%
