Is your district or school looking for ways to support teachers with CPM curriculum beyond the first year or two of implementation? Are the teachers at your site committed to continuous improvement of their instructional practices and ready to critically examine and then move their teaching expertise forward in order to enhance student understanding and learning?
Then CPM Instructional Coaching might be for you! Research indicates that effective coaching changes practice. The initial support provided in the first year of implementation is often a window into the coaching process and an opportunity to determine that additional coaching support is desired. CPM’s coaching model includes intentional, ongoing, non-evaluative interaction between a math coach and a teacher, and is designed to be an effective means to support teacher growth and, in turn, increase student learning while using CPM materials.
CPM’s Coaching Model uses rounds of lesson planning, evidence collection during teaching, and reflection as embedded professional development. Through this work, teachers set goals based on the eight Math Teaching Practices (NCTM) and plan action steps in order to increase student engagement and learning in mathematics. The goal is for teachers to value and internalize the process, to continue working in collaboration with other math teachers, and to create a culture of growth for teachers beyond the CPM coaching experience.
Coaching cycles typically include several coaching rounds — planning, data collection, and reflection conversations — and can include professional learning sessions as well. The coach may work with individual teachers or teams of teachers. CPM coaching support is a perfect option for schools and districts striving for higher levels of student engagement and achievement through the implementation of CPM materials.
