Instructional Rounds and me – Teacher Professional Leave: 2010 -2011.

This week I’ll be part of an Instructional Round taking place in a secondary school. To prepare,  I’ve been revisiting my reflections from last year.  In 2010, my Teacher Professional Leave (TPL) partner and I were part of the Southern Metropolitan Region Instructional Rounds Pilot. Move forward one year, and it’s interesting to note that my blog stats record Instructional Rounds as a common search topic. This was not the case a year ago.

To support Instructional Rounds, my TPL partner and I created the following videos. If you haven’t seen them, please take a look.

The following video is not for general viewing on YouTube, but you can view by clicking the following link. This is a photostory of the SMR Instructional Rounds Pilot. It’s already been viewed 361 times which is considerable considering it can only be viewed via the link.


Cheers Nina

    Hi Casey,
    Thanks for the great feedback. I’ve just been to the Intrepica site. I’ll join and have a play. So I can’t make a comment yet. I’m a big user of exemplars and ‘deconstruction’ inquiry. Thanks for commenting and I’ll get back to you.
    Cheers Nina

  2. Hi Nina, I lOVE LOVE LOVE this site, its amazing. I was just wondering if you have tried the new “Intrepica” software, it maps the new National Curriculum its a literacy tool – grammar spelling, reading etc heard a lot of really good schools are using it now like Newington. I wanted to know what you think, do you use it for your kids?
