    Supporting STEM education leaders in deeply examining core ideas, practices, and crosscutting concepts is critical to supporting a new vision of science teaching and learning. The Curriculum Topic Study (CTS) process and tools link state standards, core content, research on learning, and best practices using a unique, systematic study process.

    • Curriculum Topic Study (CTS)
    • State Science Updates
    • Exhibitor Learning Sessions

    Featured Session Descriptions

    Dr. Ellington provides a view of STEM education that moves beyond the current view of change from a perspective of implementing “the right” strategy to one that is transformational and requires the STEM community to examine who we are, and the internal and external shifts needed to realize the DREAM of diversity, equity, and inclusion in STEM classrooms.

    Curriculum Topic Study (CTS) is a systematic professional learning process and tool that science leaders can use to inform their work and build professional knowledge with K-12 teachers as they transition to a new vision of teaching and learning. Co-authors of Science Curriculum Topic Study, Page Keeley and Joyce Tugel, will provide an overview of ways CTS can be used with the three dimensions (core ideas, practices, and crosscutting concepts) and STEM connections to build a bridge between standards & research and classroom practice. Members will engage in Q &A and discussion of ways they can use CTS to support K-12 teaching and learning in Texas schools.
