Rounds a constructivist challenge and a tool to build a culture that values the ‘chops’.

I was honoured recently to participate in a 1/2 day conversation with Professor Richard Elmore from Harvard University on Instructional Rounds.

He spoke about where the protocols of Instructional Rounds first developed, the pivotal problem of practice, the challenge of the constructivist to make sense of instruction, our tendency for procedural recall tasks and for adults to be the locus of control in classrooms, the struggle for most teachers to control the bighter students, misconceptions explored through lesson study, the culture shock, trust, and coaching. 

It will take me a little time to process all that he had to say so please bear with me as I attempt to do this through several posts.
