Praise Walks

Want to build an open door policy amongst your educators where learning from each other and collaboration are the norm? Ask us about the highly effective strategy of Praise Walks!​

Research informs us that school-based professional development is most effective when paired with follow-up coaching. We believe that teachers have the greatest impact within the school system to impact student learning, so while students benefit from the guidance and support of a teacher walking with them along their learning journey, teachers benefit from a similar supportive relationship with our coaching team.

 

We believe that students and their needs should drive great instruction, so we utilize a student-centered coaching model which keeps student thinking and learning at the center of every coaching session. We collaborate and plan instructional strategies to move students towards identified targets and collect and analyze data in the form of student work, classroom conversations, and/or student conferences to evaluate student progress. While the agenda of each day may look different (i.e. planning, co-teaching, modeling, collecting/analyzing data, practicing new instructional skills, etc.), the purpose of each day remains the same: increase student learning and understanding.

All students, teachers, and coaches deserve a trusting and supportive partner to help them reach their full potential as learners and doers of mathematics. Our one-on-one and group coaching for coaches supports instructional leaders in developing their capacity to meet the needs of those they support within the mathematics classroom.
