Video Grand Rounds (VGR) provide teacher candidates with an introductory framework for classroom observations and subsequent discussions guided by faculty. This provides a conceptual foundation for their future study in teacher education.
Teacher candidates view video segments of typical classrooms, complete structured classroom observation protocols, and then debrief with faculty regarding the observations.
