About the eBook

Teacher Rounds: Powerful peer-to-peer teacher professional development!

Teachers can be leaders of their own ongoing learning—and their best professional development resources may be their own classrooms and colleagues. Applying the Teacher Rounds methodology, teachers learn with and from each other through classroom observations and inquiry and develop a trusted community of practice.

Scholar-teacher Thomas Del Prete outlines every aspect of this practice-based approach to professional learning, including:

  • Step-by-step guidance and tools for implementing Teacher Rounds
  • Insights on creating a positive environment for honest feedback
  • A wealth of examples from a high-performing school and across all grade levels and disciplines

Based on a whole-hearted commitment to the art and science of teaching, this book helps teachers take classroom instruction to new levels of excellence.
