2013 School Leadership Summit -- Using Instructional Rounds to Create 21st Century Schools
Instructional Rounds, based on the work of Elizabeth City, Richard Elmore, Sarah Fiarman, and Lee Teitel, are a form of walkthoughs, district improvement strategies, data collection, and team building/networking. They are not for teacher evaluation, but rather for systemic improvement. The four steps in instructional rounds are to identify the problem of practice, observation, debrief, and focus on the next level of work. The discussion of 21st century learning can enter at any or all steps of the process.

During this session, we will discuss what Instructional Rounds are, a few examples of rounds and how rounds can build a collaborative, inquiry-based culture focused on 21st century, student-centered learning.
