Abstract: Research has identified a number of high-leverage instructional practices that are strong predictors of student learning. However, relatively little is known about how teachers learn to effectively implement these instructional practices. Using a mixed-methods, case-comparison design, this study uses a cognitive lens to examine specific features of instructional coaching that support 3rd–8thgrade mathematics teachers in learning to implement ambitious instructional practices. Results showed that coach-teacher pairs who discuss when and why certain practices should be implemented during pre-lesson conferences see larger gains on a measure of ambitious instruction in later lessons. Implications for the design of professional development models based in cognitive and learning science theories are discussed.
