Instructional rounds (IR) offers a unique and powerful approach to improve student learning (see About Rounds). IR is premised upon the proposition launched by Richard Elmore and the Harvard team that it takes a network to improve teaching and learning at scale.
As facilitator, mentor, author, and award-winning teacher and administrator, Tom’s many years of network leadership include a variety of implementation models such as working within one school or school system, working with the leadership of multiple schools and school systems, training and mentoring in-house facilitators, and negotiated client options.
Tom's new book, Leading Instructional Rounds in Education, is a step-by-step facilitator's guide to implementation. Throughout this explanation of leading the IR process, the reader is provided with new rounds protocols, facilitator techniques and strategies, do's and don'ts, and suggestions on how to move a network forward. The book is already in the second printing.
