Learning to Walk, Walking to Learn: Reconsidering the Walkthrough as an Improvement Strategy
Lemons, Richard W.; Helsing, Deborah
Phi Delta Kappan, v90 n7 p478-484 Mar 2009
School leaders desperate for strategies that will improve student learning have often opted to embrace strategies that they have observed being used successfully in other districts. Sometimes, this works; sometimes, it does not. This article presents two vignettes about districts that made similar decisions to implement learning walks. The experiences of Alexander School District and Baxter School District help demonstrate the authors' beliefs about what is required to identify and implement a strategy that can be effective in one's district.
