NCTM Book Study: Unveiling the Proactive Coaching Framework
What does high-quality mathematics coaching look like? What learning activities and practices result in improved teaching practices that have potential to improve student learning? The decisions leaders make about the design and delivery of professional learning is key to instructional improvement.
In this online book study, participants will dive deeply into cases about coaches who have asked themselves similar questions and found practical solutions that centered on seven Mathematics Coaching Practices (adapted from Baker and Knapp 2019; Gibbons and Cobb 2017; Teachers Development Group 2010) that are at the heart
of the Proactive Coaching Framework (PCF). The PCF guides mathematics leaders to advocate for research-informed practices and facilitate critical conversations about initiating, assessing, and sustaining change within schools.
Each session will focus on one Mathematics Coaching Practice (MCP) and support coaches as they implement equitable and ambitious mathematics teaching.
Additionally, each session presents a case that explores how the PCF is used by coaches. These cases include a variety of settings and contexts that serve to illuminate how coaches and leaders have used the PCF in their design of professional learning.
