CETE-supported Math Coaching Program is awarded $2.8 million

The Ohio State University College of Education and Human Ecology Department of Teaching and Learning’s Patti Brosnan and Azita Manouchehri have received $2.8 million from the Ohio Department of Education to continue the Mathematics Coaching Program (MCP) for a 10th year. The MCP provides training to experienced teachers who work as full-time mathematics coaches. The coaches team up daily in six-week rotations with teachers in their classrooms to assist in implementing research-based strategies that help K–12 students learn mathematics. Some of the 239 schools with math coaches have moved their academic statuses from emergency to excellence in just three years. The MCP’s 225 coaches have had statistically significant gain scores in mathematics content and many of the over 4,000 mathematics teachers with whom the coaches have worked have improved their mathematics content and pedagogical skills. Cheryl Johnson of CETE also supports the MCP.
