Case Description

The coach-author, Bonita, describes her efforts to facilitate meaningful and challenging math professional development for teachers. She describes her struggles in reaching two resistant teachers and in connecting the seminar to their beliefs and concerns. Bonita includes specific examples of her correspondence between the teachers and her efforts to reframe the professional development goals in order to meet the teachers' perceived needs and so that the teachers can appreciate—and connect to—the purpose and direction of the seminar. In this way, Bonita's case also highlights the use of written correspondence as a useful coaching strategy.
