|The STAAR Alternate 2 Curriculum Framework documents list the reporting
categories, knowledge and skills statements, and student expectations
tested by STAAR in each grade and subject or high school course. TEA
summarizes each knowledge and skills statement into an essence statement
that serves as the connection between the grade-level Texas Essential
Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) and the online system. The Curriculum
Framework documents also list access points in the form of prerequisite
skills that link to the students expectations on the Vertical Alignment
documents for each grade and subject or high school course. |
Teachers can use the Curriculum Framework to target instruction for the ten essence statements assessed each year. Teachers can determine where each individual student is performing on the framework document for each essence statement and focus instruction to move him or her to the highest student expectation he or she can attain for a given year.
We have added a list of instructional terms for each subject to the beginning of each curriculum framework. Students must be familiar with these terms as they are developmentally able to comprehend the content. Students in higher grades need to know the terms presented in earlier grades.
