What are some ways to do classroom observations in short visits of 5-15 minutes? The responsibilities of school site administrators are numerous and varied, yet one of the most important, is for them to support an environment that provides a high quality instructional program for every student. In surveys completed by teachers about what they wanted from principals in creating a positive school climate, they felt it was essential to: (1) treat students and teachers fairly and equally; (2) communicate with students and teachers; (3) support students and teachers; (4) model caring behaviors; (5) be visible and available; (6) lead learning; (7) focus on teaching and learning; and (8) create opportunities for professional learning. One strategy that administrators have used to help meet this challenge is to do classroom walkthroughs. This is a process of visiting classrooms for short time periods of 5-15 minutes, where the instructional program is observed, feedback is provided to teachers, students talk about what they are doing, and data is gathered to inform curricular decisions.
