Overview

The third component of a learning trajectory is instruction—the experiences teachers use to help students move through the levels of the developmental progression of understanding and skill. This part introduces several instructional tasks that are designed to help students develop knowledge and skill relevant to particular levels of the length learning trajectory. The focus here is on the early levels of the learning trajectory, as well as opportunities to think about modifying an instructional task in order to target a particular level.
