Take Your Next Steps With Kagan

Now that you have taken a big first step with Kagan, ensure your professional development investment pays off by ensuring successful and sustained implementation.

Training and Kagan Classroom Coaching
We strongly urge you to complete the Cooperative Learning training and follow up with Kagan Coaching. Kagan Classroom Coaching will ensure successful implementation of Kagan Structures. Guarantee success by bringing a Kagan Coach to each classroom to observe teachers using Kagan Structures in their lessons. Coaches will diagnose areas of improvement and skillfully work with teachers to "fix" any problems in-the-moment. Small changes can make all the difference. A Kagan coach can support approximately 16 teachers in one day!

Administrators who attend Kagan workshops with their teachers and observe Kagan Coaches are better able to support their teachers. We highly recommend administrators take part in the training and the coaching.

3 Best Steps for Success

Bring in a Kagan Coach
A Kagan Coach can observe up to 16 teachers in one day to ensure they are using Kagan Structures correctly. Your Kagan Coach will provide friendly accountability and will support your teachers with helpful suggestions that make all the difference. Accountability and support produce tremendous results.

Complete the Training
Kagan Structures Level 1: Cooperative Learning is a 5-day course. Give your teachers the benefit of all 5 days of training. More training means more Kagan knowledge, more skills, more structures, and more engagement!
