Derute Consulting Cooperative is proud to support the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction and its Wisconsin Instructional Coaching Collaborative across the 2019-2020 academic year. The goals of this initiative are to increase participants’ coaching for equity capacities, practices, and strategies in three focus areas:

  • Identifying and naming inequitable action and belief frameworks (e.g., white fragility, deficit thinking, color-blind thinking, racial conflict avoidance, etc.) and developing equitable coaching interventions.

  • Identifying and naming classroom and instructional level inequities (e.g., instructional, relational, curricular, learning outcomes) and developing equitable coaching interventions.

  • Identifying and naming inequitable access to ambitious learning opportunities (e.g., disciplinary thinking, problem-based learning, subject area expertise, quality education and out-of-school learning) and developing equitable coaching interventions.
