Quadratic Functions: Lesson Planning

Barbara Shreve and her coach Phil Tucher discuss her plans for the day's lesson. The lesson involves a class of students who have been unsuccessful in Algebra 1 in the past. The intervention class, Algebra Success, is a support class for the regular Algebra 1 class that the students are concurrently taking. The teacher and coach engage in a pre-lesson conversation to discuss the lesson. The coach asks questions to ascertain teaching decisions and plans. The inquiries are designed to determine what the class has been working on in previous lessons, in what areas the students are being successful and where they are meeting challenges. The coach asks the teacher to describe the lesson and then probes with further questions to clarify the key mathematics of the lesson. In addition, the coach asks questions about how the students work in class, including their comfort with classroom discourse, collaborating together, and issues around status and equity.
