Planning PyramidA way of thinking about planning instruction for all learners

  • Degrees of learning (helps teachers consider the importance of the concepts to be taught)

-What do I want ALL students to learn?

conceptually broader; most important; big ideas; concepts should be made explicit to students; ample opportunities for learning concepts

-What do I want MOST students to learn?

additional facts, extensions of main concepts; majority of students should be able to grasp and retain this information; important, but not critical

-What do I want SOME students to learn?

incidental to the content; generally detailed/more complex information; student-directed experiences

***Students should have access to all levels.
