Abstract

The design, implementation, and continuous improvement of professional development (PD) is a key component to address inherent challenges in helping our urban schools achieve their full potential for STREAM (STEM with integrated reading and arts) learning. While there are many types of PD, instructional coaching is one of the most promising strategies that can address both teacher and student needs on multiple levels. The DC FUSION STREAM PD Consortium was formed in 2017 with initial seed funding from the US Department of Education's Teacher Quality Improvement Grant Program. In this chapter, key aspects of the DC FUSION STREAM PD Consortium are described in the context of analogies for enhanced STREAM PD and how a broader view and implementation of instructional coaching can be used to transform teacher practice and effectiveness and elevate student achievement.
