Collaborating with Colleagues

Many teachers find it valuable to plan with a colleague before, during, and after teaching the Unit. Student work is often a focus for their discussions, as it provides a platform for discussing the mathematics in the Unit, Investigation, or Problem. Discussion can also cover effective teaching strategies, questioning, and other issues related to teaching.

The Coaching Worksheet gives sets of summary questions that can be useful when planning a lesson either alone or with colleagues.

Observing a CMP Classroom is a CMP observation guide. You can use it with colleagues to discuss implementation, student actions, and teacher moves.

The teacher support materials also contain a wealth of information to help you plan your lessons.
