Goals and Descriptions

The Applications of Learning (1999) curriculum offers kindergarten through grade 12 objectives for the Application and Analysis levels of Bloom's Taxonomy. EdVISION developed this curriculum based on extensive research of standardized and state tests. Additional objectives were added to enhance the content areas.

The science component of the Applications of Learning curriculum focuses on intermediate skills. The objectives primarily involve the application, examination, or analysis of various science topics.

The Pennsylvania Academic Standards describe what students should know and be able to do by the end of fourth, seventh, tenth and twelfth grade. In addition, these standards reflect the increasing complexity and sophistication that students are expected to achieve as they progress. This document avoids repetition, making an obvious progression across grade levels less explicit. Teachers shall expect that students know and can apply the concepts and skills expressed at the preceding level. Consequently, previous learning is reinforced but not retaught.

The National Science Education Standards outline "what students should know, understand, and be able to do in the natural sciences over the course of K-12 education.
