The Peer Coaching for Teachers in Crisis Contexts Pack ("TiCC Peer Coaching Pack") provides an additional layer of support for teachers participating in the Training for Teachers in Crisis Contexts by preparing teachers to use Teacher Learning Circles (TLCs) and Classroom Observations. Through these collaborative activities, teachers create a network of support and develop communities of practice to strengthen their professional development after training workshops, helping teachers make sustained positive changes in their teaching practice.
The TiCC Peer Coaching Pack includes:
The most promising teacher professional development programs provide teachers with different opportunities to learn new knowledge and skills and enough time to practice these techniques in their classrooms. In crisis contexts, where many teachers are untrained or undertrained, this continued support is arguably needed most; yet professional development in these settings is sporadic, of varied quality and often lacks any follow up support post-training (Burns and Lawrie, 2015).
The materials were developed by members of the Teachers in Crisis Contexts Collaborative (TiCC) and graduate students at Teachers College, Columbia University. They were then peer reviewed by teacher education and education in emergency experts, and field-tested in Kakuma refugee camp (Kenya) multiple times before being finalized.
