Coaching is a strategic, systematic approach to improving student learning by focusing on core mathematical concepts. It is centered on planning, enacting, reflecting on, and refining math experiences based on the evidence of student learning.
Coaches play a central role in supporting ongoing professional development at the school level by helping teachers become reflective about teaching and learning – both during individual and group coaching sessions as well as during school-based meetings.
Video can also be used to support coaching practices so teachers can observe and reflect on their own teaching. Online supports for teachers include extended access to training videos and teaching resources.
