Learn how you can work more effectively with teachers in your role as a math coach or department chair. Coaching can be a rewarding experience both personally and professionally, but it also requires taking risks, being up-to-date on the latest research, implementing best practices, and managing relationships. In this practical book for grades K-8, you’ll gain helpful insight on being an effective mentor, coach, and colleague to your math teachers. You’ll find out how to:

  • Develop relationships with your teachers through one-to-one collaboration;
  • Establish teacher-teams to meet goals effectively;
  • Improve student achievement by implementing best practices for math education;
  • Overcome common challenges faced by coaches and teacher-leaders;
  • And more!

This updated second edition contains new information on empowering teachers to tackle the key shifts of the Common Core. It also offers updated advice on ways to conduct professional development with teachers such as through online chats and book studies. The book’s appendices offer additional resources for math coaches, including rubrics, conference guides, and tools for classroom observations.
