Instructional Rounds is a networked approach to learning and leading change. It's based on the book, "Instructional Rounds in Education" by City, Elmore, Fiarman and Teitel. A great way to start your learning about Instructional Rounds is to watch the ClassMovie made byRosemeadow Public School.
Each round follows a set process:
The host school identifies a problem of practice related to student learning.
Our network members engage in professional learning to explore best practice.
There are 20-minute classroom observations without judgement.
In debrief session, we look for patterns and develop findings based on our evidence.
Our network members propose recommendations for the host school for the next level of work.
