PD developer School Improvement Network (SINET) has created the Learning Progression Tool, which provides an intuitive way to browse the Common Core State Standards for lesson planning, curriculum alignment, and remedial/special education planning. The Learning Progression Tool has been added to SINET’s Common Core solution suite, Common Core 360.
Within the Tool, the Standards are placed on a digital card deck, where each individual Standard is given its own card. Standards can be searched by any number of identifying criteria, and are accessible wherever a laptop can go. With the Tool, teachers can:
- See exactly what skills their students learned in previous school years.
- Understand what they will need to know to perform well next year.
- Plan more efficient lessons based on this knowledge.
- Differentiate lesson planning more readily.
