K-12 Learning Progressions

A Working Definition: “Learning progressions are descriptions of the successively more sophisticated ways of thinking about a topic that can follow one another as students learn about and investigate a topic over a broad span of time.”       NRC (2007) Taking Science to School 

Teachers can use Learning Progressions within a content by: Identifying a sub goal of the larger learning progression based on what students already know and what learning is ahead. Breaking the sub goal down into a smaller learning progression that can be used to organize units. Establishing clear transfer goals, understanding, essential questions. Developing meaningful assessments (especially formative). Planning & modifying instruction (how to teach the standards). Monitoring progress (mastery of specific concepts & skills: Novice <------>Expert)
