“The five essential elements of the FIT Teaching approach provide teachers with the tools and skills they need to help ensure high-quality teaching and learning in every classroom. FIT Teaching captures how the most effective teachers promote successful learning for all students.
The Five Elements of FIT Teaching
1. Plan with Purpose
Teachers plan and design instruction so that students have a clear understanding and vision of what they will learn, know, and understand, and grasp its relevance.
2. Cultivate a Learning Climate
To optimize learning, teachers create a classroom environment that is welcoming and efficient—promoting positive engagement and continuous growth.
3. Instruct with Intention
To build and deepen student understanding, teachers intentionally design and deliver lessons that incorporate focused instruction, guided instruction, collaborative learning, and independent learning.
4. Assess with a System
Teachers gather and use classroom data to guide their instructional decisions and provide students with descriptive and actionable feedback to support learning.
5. Impact Student Learning
To document their own effectiveness and identify opportunities for professional growth, teachers examine evidence of students’ short-term progress and long-term achievement.”
