Continuous Classroom Improvement (CCI) is a process where students are engaged with and responsible for their learning. It is a shift from our focus on teaching to a focus on student learning.

What characterizes a continuously improving classroom:

  • a belief system that everyone in the system can and will learn
  • clearly defined, understood and practiced procedures
  • students providing feedback and reflecting on what classroom procedures are helping them learn
  • participation in higher order thinking and learning strategies that are aligned with the learning objectives
  • instructional strategies are implemented to create conditions in which all students can actively participate
  • students know what they are to learn and why
