Walk into any school in America and you will see adults who care deeply about their students and are doing the best they can every day to help students learn. But you will also see a high degree of variability among classrooms, much higher than in most other industrialized countries. Today we are asking schools to do something they have never done before, educate all students to high levels, yet we don't know how to do that in every classroom for every child. This book is intended to help education leaders and practitioners develop a shared understanding of what high quality instruction looks like and what schools and districts need to do to support it. Inspired by the medical-rounds model used by physicians, the authors have pioneered a new form of professional learning known as instructional rounds networks. Through this process, educators develop a shared practice of observing, discussing, and analyzing learning and teaching.

In School-Based Instructional Rounds, Teitel offers detailed case studies of five different models of school-based rounds and investigates critical learning from each. Instructional rounds--one of the most innovative and powerful approaches to improving teaching and learning--has been taken up by districts across the country and around the world. Now Lee Teitel, an originator of this transformative practice, explores one of the most promising ways in which it is being adapted in the field: implementing instructional rounds networks within, rather than across, K-12 schools. In School-Based Instructional Rounds, Teitel offers detailed case studies of five different models of school-based rounds and investigates critical learning from each. Expanding rounds to include teachers, for instance, offers opportunities for a more direct connection to instructional improvement. Other areas of experimentation include increasing the frequency of visits, engaging participants across diverse roles, and modifying the structure or focus of rounds work. School-Based Instructional Rounds represents an invaluable resource for educators involved in instructional rounds. It marks a significant addition to the literature on this evolving practice.

But as they do so, practical and theoretical questions arise. This book offers a powerful analysis of how instructional rounds can work 'on the ground', weaving together the voices of stakeholders at all levels - teachers, principals, and district personnel - and presents a number of protocols to support instructional rounds.

Engaging Teachers in Classroom Walkthroughs is a practical guide to planning and implementing brief but focused classroom observations that involves teachers in every step of the process. Drawing from their study of 40 schools in the United States and Canada, the authors show how administrators and teacher leaders moved teachers from resisting to embracing the practice. Readers will learn how to * Foster a school culture that supports walkthroughs. * Implement the components of successful walkthroughs, such as focus and "look-fors," data collection methods, and meaningful follow-up strategies. * Get all teachers involved and actively participating. * Evaluate the walkthrough process and measure its effectiveness. * Use walkthroughs to support professional development related to the Common Core State Standards. This book demonstrates that when teachers learn from one another in a cycle of continuous professional growth--through observation, shared inquiry, dialogue, and follow-up--they develop a sense of collegiality and a common mission. By opening their doors to their peers, they also contribute to broader school improvement efforts that positively affect teaching and learning throughout the school.
