Instructional Rounds is not a separate professional learning program but rather teams of teachers learn the protocols of Instructional Rounds to build a collaborative cycle of inquiry. They plan and act together to improve student outcomes in a school focus area using evidence-focused strategies. Classroom observations are integral to the program and are focussed on collecting data on student learning not teachers teaching. SCHMIC consultants have trained with the Harvard Graduate School of Education and have a deep understanding of the philosophy and protocols of Instructional Rounds. SCHMIC has been working with schools in this professional practice for over five years.
