Map of the Fairness Ideal

The Fairness map is both a visual and conceptual anchor for you and your students throughout the module. The map consists of five areas or key moves for figuring out fair: get clear about things, identify complications, explore different viewpoints, decide what's important, and consider what you might do. A question that helps to make each of these areas more actionable is also included on the map. As a class, you may want to add to these initial questions to develop additional prompts for your thinking. These areas of thinking are specifically targeted for development in the module, and the fairness routines link them. The map is generally introduced to students early in the unit.
