Learning Communities

Teaching Learning Communities

Teaching Learning Communities (TLCs) are set in real classrooms in real time. They employ powerful learning structures that bring educators together from across schools to home in on the instructional core (planning, co-teaching, and reflecting on units/lessons). They combine the aspects of professional learning that have been proven to be the most effective in improving teacher practice and student learning; bringing teachers together to engage in mathematics tasks designed to deepen their understanding of the concepts, structures, patterns, and relationships that underpin all of the mathematics they are expected to teach. Participants will accompany a hosting teacher in refining a lesson through a journey of inquiry that meets two or more times throughout the year. All participating teachers are then encouraged to try the refined lesson in their classrooms and bring back artifacts from their lessons to discuss in subsequent sessions. Participants are expected to attend all sessions in a respective TLC without substitutions.

Coaching Learning Communities

Coaching Learning Communities (CLCs), or Coach Collaboratives are powerful collaborations that bring together experienced coaches from across schools and districts to work on refining their coaching practice. Through the study of video case studies or live coaching by a Master Metamorphosis Coach, coaches develop the art of Content Coaching. All participants play an active role during the sessions and are encouraged to apply what they are learning about coaching in their practice. Coaches share artifacts, issues, and concerns in ensuing sessions. Participants are expected to attend all sessions in a respective CLC without substitutions.

Principal Learning Communities

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.

 

 "In one of my math classes, magic happened. A student questioned the thinking of a peer. From that, not only did a natural discussion develop among the class (They facilitated the discussion themselves, as if I didn't exist!), they started creating generalizations. I was very excited! How can we make that magic happen more often?”
