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

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

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

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

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.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book demonstrates how using the medical model of collecting data in rounds can be applied to educational problems of practice. Such methods can provide a data-driven way to improve teaching and learning. School leaders can reflect on how an educational rounds model can help them focus on and develop plans for soving problems of practice in our schools.
