The Elementary Science TEKS: From Standards to Assessment

Grade-level focus: K–5
Audience: K–5 teachers, instructional specialists and coaches, and campus/district leaders
Session duration: Two-day session

Today’s educational system requires teachers to use standards to inform instruction and assessment. However, navigating multiple sets of standards for a variety of subjects can be daunting for elementary teachers.

In this two-day session, K–5 educators will study the structure of the science TEKS to build a deeper understanding of what standards require students to know and be able to do in elementary science. Participants will also engage in a structured process that allows for collaborative study and use of the standards to guide decisions around teaching, learning, and assessment.
