Evaluation of Math Content Coach Initiative: Survey of Classroom Teachers in Title I Schools

Description:

This brief presents findings from a 2008 survey of instructional staff in Title I schools. The survey was designed to examine the extent to which the MCC initiative was implemented in Title I schools during the 2007-2008 school year and to identify areas needing improvement.

Recommendations:

  • Support teachers with strategies for managing the pace of the MCPS mathematics curriculum.
  • Continue to clarify required skills and expectations at each grade level.
  • Ensure that teachers know the vertical articulation of the continuum of mathematical skills from one grade level to the next.
  • Continue emphasis on strategies for providing challenging and enriched instruction in a heterogeneous classroom as well as strategies for supporting struggling students within the regular classroom instructional block.
  • Review teachers' needs regarding pedagogical content knowledge in mathematics and target MCC sessions accordingly.
