Activity Progression


Instructions:



One of the characteristics of effective teachers is their content knowledge. They are able to develop interesting progressions that help students learn the skills they are teaching. Use this template to create a logical progression sequence for a skill, task or activity for students of varying abilities.





The instructor will determine most complex step (or end point) for you. Devise as many steps leading to that end point as you can. These steps should be in order of complexity with the simplest element in the progression at the bottom of the page.





Once you have completed this progression, you should be able to select one or more components from it to use in developing a lesson plan
