It is highly recommended that participants, following Hill workshops (HillRAP and HillWrite), receive a minimum of two coaching sessions. Although HillPREP certification is advised, financial constraints often prevent full certification.
Like any new skill to be learned, a one- or two-day course is only the beginning of the journey to become proficient. Class participants need guidance and feedback from a Hill expert to reach their potential.
For an additional fee of $150.00, a Hill Center trained educator will provide two coaching sessions at the participant’s school.
Coaching is effective for several reasons:
the participant receives specific, descriptive feedback
coaching is nonevaluative in nature—the environment between participant and coach is nonthreatening
coaching emphasizes growth and learning
the coach does not have supervisory responsibilities over the coachee
the coach can help the participant move from a beginning level to a developing level by notating errors and omissions and providing specific feedback
