If you’re like most principals, instructional coaches, and school technology staff, you know that classroom walkthroughs are an important part of ensuring that teachers are providing high-quality instruction.

This system is easy to use and quick to complete, which makes it ideal for busy educators. In addition, Education Walkthrough ensures that your feedback is actionable and specific so that teachers can make the necessary changes in their instruction.

Why Classroom Walkthroughs Matter

Classroom walkthroughs provide principals with an opportunity to observe instruction in real time and identify areas where teachers may need support. This type of formative assessment is an essential component of effective leadership because it allows principals to make data-driven decisions about instructional priorities and professional development needs. In addition, classroom walkthroughs can build trust and improve communication between principals and teachers.

However, many principals struggle to find the time to complete frequent walkthroughs due to the demands of other responsibilities such as meeting with parents and attending district-level meetings. Additionally, some principals feel that they do not receive enough training on how to conduct an effective classroom walkthrough. As a result, they either avoid conducting them altogether or they do not get the most out of the observations when they do take place.

The Education Walkthrough platform was designed with busy principals in mind. The system enables you to create custom walkthrough templates based on the instructional priorities at your school. Once you have created a template, you can quickly complete a 10-minute observation during any free period in your day. After completing the observation, you will have the opportunity to share immediate feedback with the teacher via email or text message.
