Instructional coaches share how they shifted teachers’ perception of contextual word problems as the end goal of mathematics instruction to the starting place. Participants will learn how to support teachers in using the Standards for Mathematical Practice as their road map for using real world problems to support all students in developing mathematical understanding.

Collaborative Coaching Across Diverse Contexts: Professional Learning for Teachers of English Language Learners
We have a collaborative coaching model which we implement across diverse contexts educating English Language Learners. We present within-school, whole-district, and cross-school models of collaborative coaching, highlighting the common cycle of planning, observing, and debriefing. We analyze the coach's role in facilitating teacher learning.

Coaching with Number Strings: Deepening Teachers' Mathematics and Pedagogy
Number strings are a daily computational routine (Fosnot & Dolk, 2002) in which the teacher poses a carefully crafted set of computational problems and represents student thinking using mathematical models. This session will explore using number strings to support teachers' growth while using contexts and models to leverage student thinking.

Coaching Teachers Through Focusing on Student Thinking
What do effective coaching conversations sound like? In this session we discuss how mathematics coaches can use student learning progressions in their coaching conversations with teachers. These conversations can support teachers to consider how to focus on and extend students’ current ideas to advance understanding and sense making (NCTM, 2014).

Designing Effective Collaborations Around Learning (DECAL): How One Small Change Improved Student Learning
This session will support leaders in using a content-focused coaching cycle and follow-up video analysis to promote the emergence of teacher voice. In our session, an emerging teacher leader will share his classroom "before and after" videos to demonstrate how this coaching process helped him to succeed in promoting powerful classroom discourse.

Helping Your Teachers Prepare Students for Algebra in Middle School: Filling in the Gaps
More eighth graders take Algebra than any other mathematics class, but skipping curriculum to do so leaves gaps. Learn how to help teachers implement research-based and CCSSM-aligned strategies and investigations that provide a coherent, comprehensive development of algebraic thinking. Coaching techniques including a free observation app will be shared.
