Exploring Three-Dimensional Learning in the New Science TEKS


How can we effectively prepare for the instructional shifts coming with the new science TEKS? In this session we look at practical, teacher-friendly ways to use real-world phenomena, science and engineering practices (SEPs), recurring themes (RCTs), and models more effectively to teach science content. We will consider how the implementation of the new science TEKS offers opportunities to better engage students, spark curiosity, and make connections to the real world. Participants will leave with ready-to-use, classroom-ready strategies for immediate implementation.


In this session, participants will: 

  • Develop an understanding of 3D learning and consider the research related to the significance and best practices related to 3D learning.
  • Experience strategies and tools to effectively use 3-dimensional learning.
  • Reflect on how to implement these instructional shifts in your particular context.
