Curriculum and Instruction

Region 16 is committed to providing a challenging, motivating, and rigorous curriculum for all students. Each curriculum unit includes the CT Core Standards, Enduring Understandings (Big Ideas), Essential Questions, Concepts & Skills, Learning Activities & Assessments. We use a “backward design process” where we determine the standards we want our students to master, how we will measure the mastery of them, and lastly, prepare the instructional plan that will support them.

Our links below provide resources to help parents understand the standards and our curriculum, and ways that they can support their children in the learning process.
