Reviews of Instructional Rounds in Education

From The School Administrator:

“Most districts struggle with how to tackle the traditional norms of privacy and isolation in teaching, while providing coherent and useful guidance and support for new instructional practices. This book includes practical advice for how leaders can achieve the right mix of consistency and creativity using nonthreatening and collaborative processes.”

From Teachers College Record:

Instructional Rounds in Education: A Network Approach to Improving Teaching and Learning shifts the professional learning community focus to administrators, thereby pushing district leaders to network with colleagues to improve practice and rethink the instructional evaluation process.”

From Book News:

“In instructional rounds, groups of teachers and administrators observe classrooms, focus on a specific problem, analyze and discuss the instruction, and recommend improvements, and here the authors outline the process of planning, organizing, facilitating, implementing, and reflecting on the rounds.”
