I’ve just returned from Wollongong where I was invited by the Australian Capital Territory [ACT] principals to share my journey of school improvement.
For those like me who are unfamiliar with the ACT public education system it has approximately 81 schools with different configurations: years P-6, 7-10, 11-12 type schools I expected but they had others as well e.g. 6-10.
My presentation which is located on the conference page focused on improving instruction in classrooms. The principals had just been given the Instructional Rounds book by City and Elmore and expressed an interest in learning more about the process.
I have attached a summary of the book for those who missed out at the conference and invite them to join my wiki to continue sharing resources and discussion about this strategy to improve instruction in classrooms.
