ABC’s of Understanding Instructional Rounds and using it to Improve Teacher Performance
This course is designed to help educators understand Instructional Rounds with numerous possible outcomes. One is that if they are not already using it within their school or district, that this would provide enough background and basic information to introduce it to an administrator or department head. Two is if they are not using it at the building or district level but would like to utilize it on their own via classroom observations of their colleagues, note-taking strategies, assessing problem of practice and properly evaluating their notes and cross-referencing them to figure out next steps and solutions. Third is if they have already been introduced to IR but did not quite understand it at first. This course can provide a brush up on that introduction and help you move forward in your district’s future professional development seminars. Perfect for all K-12!
