The new science TEKS standards will be in effect for the 2024-25 school year. What changes have been made, and how will they impact instruction and student learning? How do teachers decide which lessons/activities are worth keeping, need tweaking, or should be thrown out altogether? What movement across and within grade levels affects potential learning gaps? These are just some of the new issues facing Texas science educators, but we can begin to prepare for them now!
