Unit Planning


NEW!  Ohio’s Learning Standards - Extended with Learning Progressions
Standards provide learning targets for units of study, lessons, and daily plans that drive instruction and assessment. This section provides direct access to the 2018 Ohio’s Learning Standards – Extended (OLS-E) that also contain Learning Progressions (LP's). Please feel free to download these documents for use in the planning process.
A learning progression is a sequence of skills linked to a learning target that build base skills and engagement as learners make progress toward mastery of the standard or learning target.
These LP's are a companion to Ohio’s New Learning Standards and OLS-E and help develop teacher and learner clarity about embedded skills within each standard. 
Please note: This resource provides many, but not all, skills leading to and through Ohio’s Learning Standards and OLS-E. The OLS-E with LP's is a living document. Review and refinement of these LP’s is ongoing and the documents will be updated regularly. Please check in frequently for the most up to date version. Edits and suggestions are welcomed. A portal for comments will be coming in the near future.
