"In 2008, Western Metropolitan Region students in grade five were the lowest performers in literacy and numeracy in Victoria. Four years later, those students ranked third in all measures, despite being the lowest SES cohort in the state. Principals identified participation in instructional rounds, facilitated by Thomas Fowler-Finn, as a key element of the region s success. In rich, challenging, and increasingly trusting collegial discussions, we learned to focus on student learning and how to improve instruction. "Leading Instructional Rounds in Education" provides a precise, practical, and very usable guide for people facilitating (and doing) instructional rounds." Katherine Henderson, former regional director, Western Metropolitan Region Department of Education and Early Childhood Development, Victoria, Australia"
"["Leading Instructional Rounds in Education"] is clearly written and rich with examples and sample materials designed to guide the facilitator through the various stages of conducting rounds.
