Country Day, we believe the Responsive Classroom approach to teaching and
learning fosters safe, challenging, joyful classrooms. Several practices from the Responsive Classroom approach are implemented including daily Morning Meetings, Rules and Logical Consequences, Classroom
Organization, and Guided Discovery.
We merge these strategies into the classroom each
day, starting with our youngest junior pre-kindergarten children and moving through
the grades. All teachers coach their students to care for themselves, their
fellow students, their environment, and their work. They are partners in caring
and learning. We strive to teach them positive social skills that will last far
beyond their elementary years at Fox Chapel Country Day School.
