EDL 519 - Coaching Teachers of Mathematics
(3 cr.) This course provides students with training and experience in mentoring colleagues--novice or experienced teachers--through a complete coaching cycle. Students actively participate in a coaching cycle that is designed to provide teachers with support over a period of consecutive days as they develop specific aspects of their teaching practice. Students develop the skills necessary to support those teachers through modeling lessons, co-planning and co-teaching lessons, conducting classroom observations and providing feedback to those mathematics teachers to foster reflective practitioners. Ultimately, students explore the best practices in mentoring teachers to improve the teaching of mathematics and to develop a peer-to-peer coaching network for inquiry, conversation, collaboration and support. Prerequisite: EDL 501.
