Instructional Rounds: Observing and Reporting on the Learning

In this video excerpt from an instructional round conducted by participants from the New Jersey Network of Superintendents (see below), we see examples of the four distinguishing elements of Instructional Rounds:

  • Identification of a problem of practice
  • Observation of practice and data collection
  • Debriefing – identifying patterns and wonderings
  • Brainstorming next level of work
