The role of the educator is an intellectually demanding one requiring the support of clear, research-based strategies to ensure success.
That’s where FIT Teaching in Action comes in. Drawing on the work of authors and educators Doug Fisher and Nancy Frey, this video outlines their FIT Teaching framework, a tool for teachers that provides them with the strategies and expertise they need to elevate instruction.
Fisher and Frey have developed a system of tactics that, when consistently and thoughtfully implemented, results in success for all.

You’ll also hear Doug Fisher's and Nancy Frey’s expert advice and practical guidance on implementing the FIT Teaching framework at your school.
Embracing FIT Teaching provides teachers with the tools for success they need in the classroom and offers a foundation for achievement that all students deserve.
The best-selling book Better Learning Through Structured Teaching: A Framework for the Gradual Release of Responsibility, 2nd EditionIntentional and Targeted Teaching: A Framework for Teacher Growth and Leadership, by Douglas Fisher, Nancy Frey, and Stefani Hite informs the FIT Teaching in Action video from ASCD.
ASCD authors Doug Fisher and Nancy Frey are professors at San Diego State University and teacher leaders at Health Sciences High and Middle College in California.
