Editorial Reviews

Review

“Listen up! Instructional Rounds redefines the teaching profession. There is no other book on school improvement like it. This is a powerful, specific, accessible treatment of what it means to get in the classroom in order to make a difference in the daily lives of teachers and their students.” — Michael Fullan, Ontario Institute for Studies in Education, University of Toronto


“In instructional rounds, the front-line work of improving classroom practice becomes everyone’s work. Drawing upon their experience in thousands of classrooms across the country, the authors provide clear direction to teachers, principals, central-office staff, superintendents, and others interested in forming school- or district-based networks with a laser-like focus on instruction. Instructional Rounds in Education is a powerful resource for anyone interested in working smarter to make instruction effective for all students.” — Larry Leverett, executive director, Panasonic Foundation


“At last, we have a book that moves school and district leaders closer to the classroom. The authors challenge the myth of leadership as an isolated, hierarchical exercise focused on grand plans and visions and bring us back where we belong—amid the complex reality of students’ and teachers’ daily lives. Full of practical, specific, and compelling evidence, Instructional Rounds in Education will have a profound influence on educational leaders who are willing to invest the time to observe, listen, and learn.” — Douglas B. Reeves, founder, The Leadership and Learning Center


“By sharing real-life vignettes, the authors carefully detail the utilization of instructional rounds as a systematic and collaborative process to engage educators in meaningful reflections about what occurs daily in classrooms. Applause to City, Elmore, Fiarman, and Teitel for providing a step-by-step approach that will yield significant results for colleagues who choose to network and grow together.” — Deborah S. Delisle, State Superintendent of Public Instruction, Ohio Department of Education

From the Back Cover

Walk into any school in America and you will see adults who 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. But we don’t yet know how to do that in every classroom for every child. Inspired by the medical-rounds model used by physicians, the authors of Instructional Rounds in Education have pioneered a new form of professional learning known as instructional rounds networks. Through this process, 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.

Format: Paperback
This book will make you rethink that way you evaluate the instruction in your school. THe approach is much like medical rounds that med students use but when adapted to education it is a powerful tool. Our district is using this process and we love it. It is reflective and insightful. BUy this book and follow the process step by step as it is intended.

This book is more of a textbook about instructional rounds. If you want to know the why of instructional rounds, this book will fill that need. It is an easy read, just a bit longer then it needs to be. This is a great book for those starting out with instructional rounds.

This publication meets the standards needed for future administrators. The standard of exposing you to additional information to help support your teaching staff and bringing in outside support in a positive way to help. It is very technical read and some sentences and concepts you have to re-read for understanding and clarity. It is not a quick read, you need time to process it.
