Coaching Through Feedback: Examining Evidence to Move Practice Forward
Evidence-based feedback holds the greatest potential for moving practice forward. Evidence-based feedback enables the teacher and coach to compare the current state of practice with the desired state of practice, making it possible for a teacher to set instructional goals. Navigating these conversations, however is not always easy. In this session, we will analyze two coach-teacher conversations and name features of feedback, as well as effective coach moves used to support teacher learning.

The Answer Still Matters … Eventually
Effective teachers engage students in productive struggle as a way to develop mathematical thinking and learn new content. We sometimes say, "It's not the answer that matters, it's the process." But the answer does matter, even as we focus on the struggle. How can we slow down the race to answers and use the journey as a vehicle for learning?

Cultivating Students' Mathematical Agency
Mathematical knowledge for teaching involves how teachers understand students' mathematical thinking, knowledge, and learning. Yet, how students learn mathematics is fundamentally connected to how they experience learning in the classroom. This presentation considers how agency supports student learning and how teachers can support student agency. Participants will actively engage with these questions: What is agency? How would we know it if we saw it? And how can teachers learn to cultivate agency in their students?

Developing Teachers' Mathematical Knowledge for Teaching by Integrating Four Core Elements Within Practice-Based Professional Development
This presentation reports on a five-year study exploring an approach to teacher professional learning designed to foster usable mathematical knowledge for teaching (MKT). Driving the design was the hypothesis that professional development integrating elements of mathematics teaching practice-one of which is mathematics content-would foster learning given its replication of how knowledge is used in teaching. Significant gains in MKT and teacher confidence levels were found. Design principles and examples will be discussed.

Since 2011, teams of educators have engaged in lesson study with the research team to investigate children's thinking through a spatial lens, and to design tasks to provide rich learning experiences involving spatial reasoning across the mathematics curriculum. The session will include opportunities for participants to experience spatial tasks designed through the process.

Learning from Children's Mathematical Thinking: An Approach to Formative Assessment
Teaching in response to children's mathematical thinking is at the heart of high-quality mathematics instruction. In this session, we will share a formative assessment approach that allows K-5 teachers to gather detailed information about their students' mathematical ideas using Cognitively Guided Instruction frameworks. This interview-style assessment utilizes counting, addition, multiplication, division, fair sharing, and relational thinking tasks that can be used by teachers and entire schools to make instructional decisions based on students' current understandings.

Kay Gilliland Equity Lecture: Empowering Teachers to Disrupt Racial Inequities: The Fundamental Praxis of Becoming a Change Agent
As we consider how to best serve students of color in school mathematics-students who have been overwhelmingly under-served by that system-it will take a resolute commitment to praxis and to growing teachers. As a learning system, school mathematics has done poorly at a providing equitable learning opportunities. In practice, "solutions" have been rather technical or have been top-down with only minimal support to the teacher to carry out the solution. As a system, we need to reconceive of mathematics teaching as a continuous learning enterprise and of teachers as change agents in that enterprise, not just implementers of policy and/or solutions. I will share a developmental process of empowering teachers to disrupt systemic racial inequities that we use in our work. The process begins with self-study-in-context and builds to enacting an informed, reflective, systematic action plan. This process-Acknowledge, See, Speak & Act-was developed collaboratively by the Designing for Equity by Thinking in and about Mathematics (DEbT-M) networked community. The partnership's name echoes Gloria Ladson-Billings' argument, and our community stance, that we owe children of color an education debt. Grounding principles of the DEbT-M community-whose primary goal it is to reduce systemic opportunity gaps experienced by children of color in mathematics classrooms-will also be shared.

The world has become nearly obsessed with the word "STEM" and all of its variations. In almost every real-world problem - from building energy-efficient homes to designing a football stadium in Texas - the person solving the problem has to recognize and deal with the interconnectedness of science, technology, engineering and mathematics in order to find the best solution. This interdependence in STEM appeals to our curiosity and can deepen our appreciation of math. As math educators, we have a sense that math cannot be separated from the sciences. So how do we best address STEM so that students gain a better understanding of and appreciation for math?

"Futuring" Professional Development Through Video Coaching: Exploring Tools to Take On Ambitious Mathematics Instruction
This session will share how video peer coaching and lesson exchanges engaged a community's teachers to take on ambitious mathematics instruction. Ambitious teaching in mathematics refers to reform teaching practices that develop "mathematics proficiency" in diverse learners through rigorous mathematics while helping students view themselves as competent problem solvers and mathematicians. We will highlight the tools and strategies that helped teachers develop their own professional vision of what ambitious teaching entailed through video coaching.

Coaching with an Eye on Teaching:  Essential Coaching Practices that Lead to Effective Teaching Practices
NCTM's Principles to Action identifies eight effective mathematics teaching practices that allow for mathematical success for all students. But what are the "coaching practices" that help teachers develop those teaching practices? Participants will look at how to develop and implement a vision for mathematical learning, how to develop teachers' content and pedagogical knowledge, and how to use active listening and questioning techniques-all with the aim of helping teachers be their own instructional change agents.

Launch the Learning: Lessons to Promote Teacher Collaboration and Student Engagement
Engage in tasks that "launch the learning" for mathematics and learn how these lessons have provided more opportunities for coaching and teacher collaboration. As a district, we have integrated lessons with low-floor, high-ceiling tasks to "launch" units which created more opportunities for collaboration and reflection among teachers and coaches. Participants will leave with innovative ideas of how to implement similar structures to increase teacher content knowledge and collaboration which positively impacts student engagement.
