Math Coaches: Sense-Makers, Messengers, and Mediators of New Standards

Sense-Makers, Messengers, and Mediators of the New Mathematics Standards: Math Coaches in the Math in Common Community of Practice

The five-year Math in Common (MiC) initiative supports a formal network of 10 California school districts as they implement the Common Core State Standards in Mathematics across grades K–8.

MiC researchers interviewed coaches and staff in all 10 MiC school districts to gain a better understanding of how districts position coaches to help teachers make sense of math standards and bring the standards to life in the classroom.

This report features insights from staff and coaches, and offers eight practical recommendations for how districts can structure coaching activities that will work best in their own context.
