TLQP Math Learning Community
The TLQP Mathematics Learning Community is a group of teachers who, along with a faculty coach, systematically examine teaching practices to improve teaching and student achievement. Major math concepts, from one grade level to the next, are observed through the following three phases:
- A faculty coach models lessons from teachers several times per month.
- The teacher demonstrates mastery of the observed instructional approach by working collaboratively on a small number of "study lessons" that require observing the strategy, teaching the strategy and critiquing the implementation of the strategy.
- After each teacher has had the opportunity to master a strategy, the learning community meets afterschool to debrief and decide on the next topic or strategy.
