Curricular Frameworks are resources developed to help teachers translate standards into classroom practice. They do not represent a directive to teachers, schools or districts for classroom instruction. They do represent ways Oklahoma educators think about translating standards into classroom instruction. The Oklahoma Science Frameworks currently include: an introduction to the structure of the standards, the dimensions that comprise them and grade level overviews. The Oklahoma Science Frameworks will include additional documents of support including: progression documents, grade level companions documents, exemplars and other guiding documents as determined via feedback from Oklahoma educators.
The Framework Overviews represent how a group of Oklahoma teachers, at a given grade level, might group or bundle standards for the purpose of developing instructional units and then describe how they would think about developing instruction for those units of study.
For questions or to provide feedback on the Oklahoma Science Framework Overviews, contact Tiffany.Neill@sde.ok.gov or 405-522-3524.
