For 2017-18, KCM has once again partnered with the Kentucky Department of Education to offer Mathematics Content Coaching professional learning experiences (PLE).
Mathematics Content Coaching is designed to provide mathematics instructional coaches and administrators with job-embedded, learning opportunities that are aimed at initiating profound, sustainable, school-wide improvements in teaching and learning. The content coaching model works to build a school culture that has a shared understanding of how to engage students in learning mathematics through well-designed learning tasks and activities. All participants will observe a master coach as she co-plans with a teacher, co-teaches a mathematics lesson in a classroom, and then debriefs the lesson. The intended outcome of the KCM Mathematics Content Coaching PLE is to increase student achievement in mathematics and implement successful mathematics intervention by maximizing the impact of a mathematics coach.
The administrator sessions provide administrators of instructional coaches with a better understanding of the impact the coaching role can have on student understanding. Administrators will also observe Master Coach Anne Burgunder as she co-plans with a teacher, co-teaches and then debriefs a lesson. Participants in the administrator cohort will explore effective mathematical teaching practices related to Common Core and TPGES.
**IMPORTANT: This professional learning experience is entirely contingent on the receipt of grant funding. If funding is not received, this opportunity will no longer be available. You will be notified if this should occur.**
