A Message From Your Seminar Leader
This two-day institute will help you increase your effectiveness as a Math Coach and how you help teachers increase student achievement in math. You’ll experience hands-on strategies on both days to increase your coaching expertise and build on your current coaching model. Grouping, assessment, choosing high-impact materials, and research-proven, best practices are just a few of the topics we will cover. My goal is to bring together the tried and true methods for coaching and give you a few new twists to make it all manageable.
I have designed this institute to help you make a huge difference in the vision and framework of your mathematics program. I will provide you with research-based strategies, examples, detailed techniques and practical instructional resources that can be used immediately to help teachers help students struggling in math, and raise the mathematical achievement of all your students. I want you to walk away with highly effective practices that strengthen your coaching capacity.
As a fellow instructional coach I know we play a huge role in supporting the success of students by providing relevant and effective guidance, support, strategies, models, and exemplars for our fellow teachers. I also know it can be rather challenging to help teachers who have fallen behind in their math curriculum while trying to keep up with school, district, and state expectations. I want to show you practical ways to strengthen your mathematics coaching. You’ll leave with highly effective resources that inspire teachers and help students achieve excellence and success in mathematics. Come and enjoy this highly productive institute where we’ll examine the most effective ways to coach and support teachers so students develop a deeper content understanding and receive a higher quality of mathematics instruction.
