Heat Map


Help the teacher to realize when during the year, he/she had stressful time to better anticipate during the year after


Beginning teachers during their first years


For coaching sessions, mid-year feedback or end-of-year feedback sessions

Methodology and timing

Questions that help to structure the session:

–      What were factors of stress?

–      What was a technical, what was an adaptive challenge?

–      How has the person defined and solved the challenges, with which tools?

–      What helps the person? Which resources does he/she have to rely on?

–      What do he/she have to keep in mind to prevent negative stress?


  • Be as specific as possible – mostly in the good practices your school can use and benefit from
  • Make sure to build your partnership on trust and shared goals, not on formalized approach.
