The MyTeaching Partner-Secondary (MTP-S) coaching program for middle and high school teachers builds on research studies about effective coaching that have shown positive effects on teacher and student outcomes. For more detailed information about MTP-S, please see the “Resources” section at the end of the white paper.
For the past five years, Learning Forward has engaged in a project led by the American Institutes for Research (AIR) to better understand the MyTeachingPartner coaching model, especially its use in secondary schools (MTP-S). The project was funded by a 2017 grant from the U.S. Department of Education through its Education Innovation Research Program. Learning Forward’s interest comes from its longstanding belief in the value of coaching as an integral part of a complete professional learning program because of coaches’ ability to provide day-to-day support for learning.
