Instructional Rounds in Action is an invaluable guide for those involved in implementing instructional rounds as the foundation and framework for systemic improvement in schools.
Over the past few years, districts across the United States, Canada, and Australia have begun implementing "instructional rounds," a set of ideas and practices for advancing systemic, district-wide improvement. But as they do so, practical and theoretical questions arise.
Roberts offers a powerful analysis of how instructional rounds can work "on the ground." His book weaves together the voices of stakeholders at all levels-teachers, principals, and district personnel-and presents a number of protocols to support instructional rounds.
