  Save Your Spot: Virtual Math Coaching Program available for 6-12 math teachers

The South Dakota Department of Education is offering a Virtual Math Coaching Program during the 2015-16 school year for 6-12 math teachers. Teachers will be partnered with a coach with whom they will collaborate throughout the year to refine math instructional practices. Participating teachers will attend a regional training in October to gain a base knowledge of these practices and then further develop their pedagogical skills by collaborating with their coach in a virtual environment using a program called Edthena.

Participating teachers will receive a $150 stipend and can purchase one graduate credit for $40.

Instructional practices are aligned to South Dakota Professional Practices (Danielson Framework):

• Discourse
• Collaborative grouping
• Effective questioning
• Mindsets
• Strategies for modifying tasks
• Using assessment in learning


• Attend regional training in October 2015 (substitute reimbursement will be provided)
• Critique two pre-recorded stock videos of classroom instruction
• Record two videos of own classroom instruction and submit to virtual coach (using state-provided Swivl device and personal smart phone, iPad or other tablet computer)
• Collaborate with virtual coach regarding recorded classroom video
