SCIENCE: Significant Changes which will create action items. Use PowerPoint to keep track of these action items during your presentation

  • Science TEKS have standardized learning and teaching across the state.

  • Science TAKS has:

    • Mandated the teaching of Biology, chemistry and physics learning

    • Increased the rigor of science courses

    • Increased enrollment in Physics: Texas Physics enrollment is at an all time high: 35%. Texas ties with Illinois and exceeds CA and NY in number of students completing Physics classes.

    • The Master Science Teacher program is the first of its kind in the nation.

Response to Public Commentary: which will create action items. Use PowerPoint to keep track of these action items during your presentation

  • The number of responses who favored a fourth year of science was gratifying.

  • Many schools will not see an increase in costs when implementing the four years of science.

  • Schools will have at least three years to plan for the changes and recent rigorous expectations have already hastened schools to increase laboratory facilities throughout the state.

  • The majority of the science courses that will be needed for the fourth credit can be taught by teachers with a composite science certification.

  • Most schools have adequate staff with these certification requirements already in place.

  • In addition, most of the science courses needed for the fourth credit will not require a laboratory setting and can be taught in regular classrooms.

What’s Hard to Hear Enroll in Higher Education

  • Most science teaching is ineffective in K-12

  • Most students are not learning much science

  • Teaching and learning science is hard

    • It does not have a mechanical component like math and reading

  • Most curriculum materials are not research based and do not help teachers teach or students learn

  • Only about 1000 hours are available to teach science K-12: 50 hrs/yr in K-5, 100 hrs/yr in 6-12

  • --Dr. Nelson, Former Astronaut and Director of AAAS

  • These initial versions of the science modules were due to the SBOE for review and approval by May 31, 2004, as called for by the Request for Proposal (RFP) from the Joint TEA/THECB Committee, and as called for by the Joint Plan submitted to the Governor’s Office and the Legislative Budget Board in 2003.

  • This very short timeline also called for adjustments and refinements to the materials to be made by August, 2004.  Many have had the opportunity to preview these initial versions and each science module covers in the TEKS for its particular grade level and subject area.

  • I also expect that these teacher training materials will be of significant assistance to science teachers and school districts as they prepare to meet the requirements of the NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND ACT, by helping to ensure that all teachers are highly qualified by the end of the 2005-2006 school year.

  • Finally, the subsequent use of the modules as training materials for science teachers across the state will be a joint effort by colleges and universities, school districts, and region service centers.
