Revolutionise the walkthrough to focus on the endgame of teaching:
student learning. Authors Connie M. Moss and Susan M. Brookhart present the
proven practice of formative walkthroughs
that ask and answer questions that are specific to what the student is learning
and doing.

Learn the value of having the observer examine the lesson from the
student’s point of view and seek evidence of seven key learning components:

  • a
    worthwhile lesson

  • a
    learning target

  • a
    performance of understanding

  • look-fors,
    or success criteria

  • formative

  • student

  • effective


Drawing upon their research and extensive work with F–12 teachers
and administrators, Moss and Brookhart delve into the learning target theory of
action and show you how to develop a schoolwide collaborative culture that
enhances the learning of teachers, administrators, coaches and students. They
present detailed examples of how formative walkthroughs work across year levels
and subject areas, and provide useful templates that administrators and coaches
can use to get started – now.

Grounded in the belief that schools improve when educators improve
and that the best evidence of improvement comes from what we see students doing
to learn in every lesson, every day, Formative
Classroom Walkthroughs
offers a path to improvement that makes sense – and
makes a difference.
