In Principal Learning Communities (PLCs), Principals meet together to explore mathematics instruction and learning, and to deepen their own understanding of mathematics.  PLCs pay particular attention to strategies for assessing teacher development and for providing teachers feedback that is sculpted to improve the math instruction and learning in their classrooms. Principals and Metamorphosis Master Coaches work together on:

  • Building consensus regarding what constitutes effective mathematics instruction.
  • Developing a common lens for analyzing and assessing mathematics instruction as evidenced in student thinking expressed orally or in writing.
  • Understanding the components of rich mathematics lessons; this includes big ideas, strategies, and mathematical models.
  • Understanding the components of effective pedagogy (e.g., use of board space, talk moves, and types of questions posed).
  • Providing tools for developing Principal capacity to give effective feedback.
  • Learning how to use coaches and lead teachers in ways that create deep and lasting change in the culture of learning.
