8 Content Alignment In Texas, science teachers will only use classroom activities if they are aligned to Texas education standards. Experience with content alignment for: – LyondellBasell – Texas Chemical Council – University of California at Berkeley (GEMS) – Hewlett Packard – Boeing – Council for Environmental Education Houston Section

9 Content Alignment Because high-sakes testing plays a prominent role in all public schools, teachers must demonstrate that activities are aligned to content standards. Alignment refers to the degree of match between selected classroom activities and the science content identified through state academic standards. Houston Section

10 Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills In Texas, the state standards are called the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS). Activities on are currently aligned to the National Science Education Standards (NSES), and the Standards for Technology Literacy.www.tryengineering.org Houston Section

11 IEEE Alignment Matrices Houston Section Grade 8IPCChemistryPhysics Strand: Force, Motion and Energy 11.A Understand energy and its forms including kinetic, potential, chemical and thermal energies. 6.B Investigate examples of kinetic and potential energy and their transformations. 6.A Demonstrate and calculate how unbalanced forces change the speed or direction of an object's motion. 4.A Describe and calculate an objects motion in terms of position, displacement, speed and acceleration. 4.A Generate and interpret graphs and charts describing different types of motion including the use of real-time technology such as motion detectors or photogates. 6.B Differentiate between speed, velocity and acceleration. 4.B Measure and graph distance and speed as a function of time using moving toys. 4. B Describe and analyze motion in one dimension using equations with the concepts of distance, displacement, speed, average velocity, instantaneous velocity, and acceleration. Blast Off ! Students build and launch a model rocket and consider the forces on a rocket, Newton's Laws, and other principles and challenges of an actual space vehicle launch. They design their structure on paper, learn about aerospace engineering, launch their rocket, and share observations with their class.

12 Next Generation Science Standards As part of a move to implement Common Core Standards, the NSES are currently being modified. They will be called the Next Generation Standards for K–12 Science. 45 states have already adopted Common Core standards in Language Arts and Math. Houston Section
