Mathematics Coaching and Collaboration in
a PLC at Work™
  explores developing common assessments and successfully implementing
them within the K–12 mathematics classroom. It includes
tools for lesson study, embedded coaching and responding to evidence of student
learning from common unit assessments. It advocates focused coaching and
collaboration with teacher teams to drive increased student achievement in
mathematics. Part of the Every Student
Can Learn Mathematics
series, it offers a comprehensive professional
learning community (PLC) approach to sustaining deep change in mathematics
success. The PLC at Work process is one of the best models that schools or
districts can use to build a more equitable learning experience for students.
Using the four critical questions of a PLC, teams will provide every
mathematics student with common learning experiences, opportunities for
sustained perseverance, and robust formative feedback. Divided into two parts,
this book offers two key coaching actions for success from the Mathematics in a
PLC at Work framework, guiding leaders to (1) develop high-quality common
assessments and (2) use them for formative student learning and intervention.

  • Reflect on current practices and routines,
    refine practices based on high-quality and research-affirmed criteria, and act
    by improving on current practices and routines

    assessments that target essential learning standards and interventions results

    to support student learning
