FIP lies at the heart of effective teaching and learning; these practices are critical to the success of teachers and students in Ohio. By learning about and using formative instructional practices, teachers will discover ways to effectively plan for instruction and assessment of new standards, as well as learn skills necessary to create student learning objectives (SLOs) that gauge student growth and may be a component of their professional evaluation.
