Debriefing and Assessment

Sarah Goff and Katelin Warnock

Debriefing is essentially the process of “unpacking” PA sessions.  It is important to thoroughly debrief and get the students’ opinions about how the session went. The post-session coaching debrief form is also an effective way to quickly “unpack” the session that helps the coaches to make sure that they are in agreement about the day. Coaches should keep in mind that they should be completely honest in order for this to be an effective tool. Another great tool for debriefing is to have the coaches complete a personal reflection journal entry after each session. This is something that gives each coach an opportunity to assess and keep track of how s/he feels about the weekly sessions.
