Academy of Math

For Professional Development of Teachers

Academy of Math is a professional learning and coaching solution offered exclusively by Schultz. Based on the “Understanding by Design” model by Jay McTighe and James Stiegler, Academy of Math is a model of professional development, learning rounds, and job-embedded coaching that starts by first identifying what the desired results are and also works with educators to design lessons and curriculum with the end result in mind. Schultz incorporates scaffolded activities whenever possible with the goal of developing teacher-leaders who can help sustain competencies throughout the school for the long term.
