Overview

Stamford is committed to providing highly effective and rigorous literacy instruction to prepare all students for the 21st century. Instruction is delivered through the workshop model. Daily rituals and routines are established and practiced empowering students to function independently with a high level of accountability. The workshop model is grounded in the gradual release of responsibility from teacher directed modeling (I do) to teacher supported practice (we do) to student directed work (you do).
