High Quality Instruction... the New Fairfield Way

Learners are academically and intellectually engaged to make meaning and connections and take ownership of their learning through civil discourse, questioning, taking risks, extending thinking, collaborating, and persevering.

Tasks support mastery of the standard, are designed for students to make meaning, provide an opportunity for each student to engage personally, intellectually, and academically, and have success clearly defined.

Learning environments are inclusive, flexible, and emotionally and intellectually safe in order to foster authenticity, personal connections, learning with and from others, and intellectual risk-taking.

Teachers orchestrate student-centered learning through questioning, listening, eliciting student thinking, and providing actionable feedback to support students in making meaning.
