Training for Coaches

“I love using MQI coaching to narrow the focus [of discussions about classroom instruction] with a specific scoring tool to reflect on teaching practices based on evidence only.”  –Math Coach

“This was the most well-thought out and organized professional development I have ever taken. I think I have grown more as an educator in the past 3.5 days than I have at most professional developments I have ever taken.” –Teacher Leader

MQI Coaching experts from Harvard University customize the content of the MQI Coaching Institute for your school or district’s needs. In addition to the four-day training, participants can opt in to receive tailored feedback and support through ongoing professional development throughout the school year.

The four-day training will focus on the Mathematical Quality of Instruction (MQI) rubric, a math specific observation rubric, and how to use it as an effective coaching tool. The curriculum provides participants with an in-depth understanding of the MQI Coaching model and hands-on experience using the MQI to guide teachers’ growth. The training is geared toward individuals who provide feedback and support for mathematics teachers.

After completing the training, participants will have:

  • A working knowledge of the MQI rubric
  • An effective coaching model that can adapted to fit your context
  • Concrete next steps for implementation and rollout
  • An overview of the research that led to the development of MQI Coaching
  • Access to the MQI video library
  • Access to ongoing professional support throughout the year
