This subject provides participants with knowledge, skills and dispositions to enhance teacher capacity and thereby improve numeracy outcomes for all students through coaching, lesson study and instructional rounds. These three strategies are widely used for numeracy and have a common focus on building teacher capacity to improve the effectiveness of instruction through teacher professional development. Each method comes with important pre-suppositions for school policy and practice that are a key area of responsibility of school leaders.
