Walk Throughs

Oakdale Joint Unified School District’s open door policy allows educators to visit and learn from other educators.  One of the open door practices supporting instruction is the Walk Through. During a Walk Through, an administrator, teacher, or team is in each classroom for 3-5 minutes.During this short visit, the visitor(s) focus on the engagement strategies being used by the teacher. Teachers demonstrate engagement strategies when they ask the students to say, do or produce something in the classroom, thereby ‘requiring’ students to be active learners. Walk Throughs are practiced by many groups in OJUSD:

  • TK-6 and 7-12 Curriculum Councils
  • Principals and Vice Principals
  • District Office Instructional Leaders
  • Site Principals may arrange for their teaching staff to Walk Through
