Time-stamped notes

Coaches use Whetstone’s “Running Record” to capture what they’re observing in the classroom second by second. Whether you call them literal notes, low-inference notes, or simply “notes,” this tool will make it easy for you to identify critical moments during your observations to increase the impact of your coaching conversations.

Action steps and goals

Whetstone’s Action Step and Goal managers make it easy for coaches to assign and share action steps with teachers, as well as track mastery, allowing leaders to measure teachers’ qualitative skill growth over time.

WEEKLY DATA MEETINGS

During Weekly Data Meetings (WDMs), instructional coaches help teachers identify student misconceptions and subsequently plan a re-teach lesson to help students master objectives. With Whetstone Meetings, schools can easily track every type of feedback meeting that occurs — WDMs, O3s, 1:1s, or standard observation debriefs.
