Instructional Rounds at JCDS. Professional Development Goal: to build the knowledge and skills of the group and to provide helpful feedback and suggestions of support to the host teacher. Goal is to learn about teaching not to focus on teachers.
The relationship between the teacher, the student and the content – not the qualities of any one of them by themselves – determines the nature of instructional practice.
Each corner of the instructional core has its own particular role and resources to bring to the instructional process.
