Teachers and educators are strongly advised to review the introductory chapters of this framework, including the chapter on Instructional Strategies.
A primary goal of this section is to provide an example of how to bundle the PEs into related groups that can form the basis for the instructional segments. There are six instructional segments in this course, so each would correspond to a bit more than one month of classroom instruction in a traditional school calendar year, though the instructional segments are not equal in duration.
Within this document, an explicit description is provided of how each PE in an instructional segment relates to one another. Ensuring that the scientific concepts smoothly transition from one to the next emphasizes the fact that these topics build on one another.
