Professional Learning Through Coaching
ORIGO Education provides dynamic professional learning services to help teachers create meaningful learning experiences for their students. We work alongside teachers and educational leaders to transform research and theory into constructive, everyday classroom practices that make learning mathematics meaningful and enjoyable for all.
Our team of experts offer methods, ideas, and strategies to help you nurture engaged, motivated, and happy-to-learn thinkers. ORIGO Education coaching support can be offered through a strategic combination of onsite professional learning sessions, in-class observations and model lessons, and follow-up online sessions.
ORIGO Coaching Services

ORIGO coaching services are designed to strengthen mathematics instruction in the school or district by developing teacher content knowledge and instructional skills. These coaching services can support any core mathematics program and are customized to the goals of the district or building. Virtual coaching services emphasize support for individual teachers through video coaching cycles.
- In this process:
- The teacher and coach identify a focus area,
- The teacher records a lesson and shares it with the coach, and
- The coach and teacher jointly review the video and set goals for strengthening instruction. The six coaching sessions in this package may be used to support six teachers with single sessions or fewer teachers with multiple sessions, depending on the goals of the building or district.
Prepare teachers to differentiate instruction for the variety of learners in their classes this year by learning the WHAT and HOW to meet student needs.
- First, understand WHAT resources you have and WHAT the available data says about your students’ needs.
- Then, determine HOW to differentiate instruction and accelerate learning for all students.
Virtual Coaching Models
(Attendance: Up to 50 people in each module, distributed across grade-level team sessions)
- A Strong Start Takes Planning
Thoughtful planning is the foundation for teaching success. The pandemic likely caused changes to your classroom routines and disrupted your grade-level team planning routines. This coaching module focuses on team planning at the instructional module level. Teams will review instructional module-level resources in Stepping Stones and participate in a best-practice planning session with an ORIGO Stepping Stones expert.
- Make Sense of Data
Both good teaching and routine assessment sequences (e.g., benchmark testing) generate large amounts of data. This module focuses on understanding available data sources, both within and beyond Stepping Stones, and developing a protocol for analyzing and using those data. How do we know what next steps to take with which students?
- Accelerate Learning for All Students
Once teachers are planning well and using the data available to them, the full range of student learning needs will be apparent. It is not possible to go back and reteach full chunks of content from previous grade levels. Still, some students have not learned everything they need to know to be successful in grade level content. Accelerated learning means just-in-time teaching of ideas from previous grades to support grade-level learning. This module of grade-level coaching sessions shares strategies for accelerating learning by helping teachers identify the right content to reach back for and helping teachers know when is the right time to bring content forward. Strategies for creating and working with small groups of learners will also be addressed.
