We Do These Things

Math314 has identified several high-leverage instructional strategies for equipping teachers, coaches and administrators with the knowledge and skills to create a productive learning environment. Our professional learning strategies include:

  • Assessing curriculum alignment with standards
  • Determining vertical alignment with standards
  • Planning and lesson design
  • Selecting and modifying cognitively demanding tasks
  • Engaging students in discourse around comparison and connections through multiple solution paths
  • Assessing student work to guide instruction
  • Coaching to build teacher capacity

Programs (Math314 programs are fee for service)

  • Comprehensive and Customizable Multi-Year Learning Plan – Math314 will coordinate with a school partner district to customize professional learning over three years to strategically shift math instruction and provide long-term success.
  • Specific Topics – There are short-term learning opportunities. Math314 specialists will work with the district to create a learning plan to systematically integrate the work into schools.
  • Graduate Course Offerings – The ISP has made a determined decision to create sustainable career pathways for math teachers through a Certificate in Math Education and Masters of Arts in Education: Instructional Processes.
  • Partnership with University of Pittsburgh Program – The ISP has partnered with the University of Pittsburgh’s Institute for Learning to develop this option. Math314 instructional specialists present the IFL’s “Thinking Through a Lesson” series with learning labs and content-focused coaching.
