Coaching to Advance Justice: Revising Coaching Tools to Explicitly Attend to Issues of Justice and Equity in Mathematics Teaching
Mathematics class provides a powerful setting for disrupting historical biases about who is seen as "smart." Coaches can take action toward this end by using coaching tools with mathematics teachers to make deliberate teaching moves that advance social justice. Examples include: attending to issues of status and positioning and intentionally highlighting all students' mathematical competencies. Analyze and try out our tools and bring one of your own to share/revise with colleagues.

Surfing the Waves of Change: Ready, Set, Go! How to Support Building a Math Classroom That Lets the Kids Talk!
Surfers "learn by doing" and we can, too! We can empower ALL students to be budding mathematicians by nurturing their ideas, questions, and arguments. Learn how talk moves and questioning promotes equitable access to the mathematics. We can energize our teachers to let the kids talk, justify, challenge, and appreciate each other's mathematical thinking in the early years. Experience how PK-2 teachers engage students in mathematical discourse during the first 20 days of mathematics class.

The Heart of Coaching
Why are some coaches more effective than others? We will consider the personal and professional characteristics that shape an effective math instructional coach and how to utilize those characteristics to more effectively support teachers and students. We'll discuss creating equitable lessons that keep expectations high for ALL students, and how changing the culture one classroom at a time has the potential to change an entire school district and its community!

Power Hours-Customized Coaching Capitalizing on Individual and Team Strengths
Teachers want a coach who cares about them, builds upon  their talents, and finds ways to develop and integrate those talents into their best work as they support improved student achievement through authentic, meaningful instructional practices and the creation of a classroom culture that promotes success. Coaching requires that teachers be given opportunities that maximize their individual and team strengths and develop positive professional growth mindsets-I am not someone who just takes them up a ladder that they may not want to climb. The result is team members who are respected, engaged, and energized. Although I use specifically designed tools and traditional coaching methods, I don't do "cookie cutter." Instead, I personalize each coaching experience to guide teachers along their own unique path during our "Power Hours" where we meet (individually and as teams) to plan, observe, debrief, and repeat!

Coaching Teachers to Create Positive Self-Fulfilling Prophecies in their Mathematics Lessons
As coaches and supervisors, we sometimes observe lessons that feel scripted, with teachers not responding to what is happening in the lesson. How can envisioning what a lesson will look like while planning limit a teacher when they enact the lesson? Explore strategies to support teachers to create lesson images and lesson plans that allow for flexible enactment based on what they learn from students, so the "self-fulfilling prophecy" turns into a positive learning experience.

Supporting a First-Year Teacher to Foster Students' Ability to Communicate their Mathematical Thinking
A teacher educator and first-year teacher collaborated on designing high school geometry lessons. We engaged in planning sessions and video recorded seven of them. Initial findings suggest that the focus on long term and short term planning to sequence opportunities for students to communicate thinking was productive. The participants will analyze video of small group and whole class discussions, which may be productive for educators that aim to support teachers in collaborative classroom discourse.

Turning Misconceptions into "Aha!" Moments
Teachers are frequently challenged with asking the right questions when implementing mathematical tasks. This session will stress the importance of anticipating student misconceptions so that leaders and coaches can provide tools for teachers to design effective lessons that promote a deep understanding of mathematics. Through group discussion and analysis of classroom video clips, participants will develop questions which advance student thinking and discourse, resulting in modification of student understanding and "Aha!" moments.

Collaborative Coaching: How Do We Learn Together as a Team?
Coaching is often seen as a one-on-one activity between a coach or administrator and a teacher. What if we also created activities that allow us to learn together as a team? Collaborative coaching tools that have been successful in K-8 schools, such as student interviews and mini-lesson studies, will be shared and discussed. The role of administrators, coaches, and teacher leaders in these teams will also be analyzed and explored.

Who's Doing the Work? Shifting the Cognitive Lift to Students in Mathematics Class
Learning mathematics requires students to think deeply and engage cognitively. Oftentimes, well-meaning teachers employ practices that take the "cognitive lift" out of students' hands. In this session, consider tools for helping teachers identify when and how they might be creating this unintended outcome, and explore instructional practices and classroom resources that can be used to help shift the "cognitive lift" back to students. This session will be helpful for teachers, coaches, and mathematics specialists.

Coaching Teachers to Use Photographs and Learning Progressions as Formative Assessment Tools
How can we help teachers capture evidence of children's mathematical thinking and use it as a formative assessment tool? Cameras, which are readily available, can enable teachers to document young children's mathematical thinking/actions in photographs. In this session, we will discuss how to coach teachers to gather evidence with photographs, assess photographs with a learning progression to make sense of children's thinking, and make responsive instructional decisions for moving children's mathematical thinking forward.

What Strategy Did You Use?: How To Help Students Develop a Relationship With Mathematical Strategies to Advance Their Own Learning.
While analyzing student work, our teachers came to the realization that students were using inefficient strategies to solve problems and struggling to apply efficient strategies. In the past, we used assessment scores to determine whether a student was on track, but we were not getting to the heart of the problem. This presentation explores how we moved to using operations-based micro-progressions to develop strategic discourse about student work with teachers and students to advance learning.

Supporting Teachers in Using Purposeful Questions to Promote Meaningful Discourse
Research shows that metacognition improves student learning. Discourse in the mathematics classroom helps students to clarify thinking, make connections among concepts and processes, and develop deep understanding through talking about their thinking and listening to the ideas of others. Meaningful discourse that promotes metacognition is best accomplished through the tasks we use and the questions we ask. Let's look at how we can we support teachers in posing questions that promote meaningful discourse.

Move Over Pedagogy - It's Time to Get Andragogical
Coaches play an important role in our educational system-their greatest role is in transforming adult behavior. Most coaches are former teachers who have studied pedagogy their entire lives, but have received little to no training on adult learning theory. If we want to transform adult behavior, we have to know about how adults learn. Come to this session where we will get andragogical and focus on US-the adults.

MQI Coaching and Task Cognitive Demand: coaching for increased cognitive demand by focusing on implementation over materials
In our research, we see that the extent to which the students, as opposed to the teacher, are doing the mathematical "heavy lifting" in a lesson depends far more on the teachers' instructional decisions than on the task or curriculum being used. This session explores the "enactment" of various types of tasks, and how coaches can support teachers' to improve the cognitive demand for all students, regardless of the curriculum or task being implemented.
