2 Texas Middle School Fluency Assessment: Administering and Interpreting Results
This binder details how to score and interpret the results of the Texas Middle School Fluency Assessment (TMSFA). This course is Unit 4 of the Texas Adolescent Literacy Academy (TALA). These materials are available for view only; no credit or certificate is provided.
Given laboratory investigation scenarios, students will distinguish between scientific hypotheses and scientific theories.
Teaching Sentence Skills
This resource series is designed to enhance teachers' knowledge and skill so they can effectively teach grammar in context. Teaching grammar in context uses powerful models like sentences within mentor texts, rather than marking errors and correcting weak or wrong examples.
Tone is in the Fear of the Beholder: Reading and Writing Using Multimodal Mentor Texts
This resource is a demonstration lesson presented at the 2014 Write for Texas Summer Institute. It provides a snapshot of a four to five week unit that engages students in the reading and writing workshop model.
Six Syllable Types and Morphology
This set of videos is organized into two topics: Six Syllables Types and Morphology. The videos are edited from a six-hour professional development and may be used as a sequenced set of lessons or individually.
6.01 Classifications of Waves
In this video, we explore the two fundamental categories of waves and give physical examples of each.
6.02 Properties of Waves
In this video, we define the fundamental quantities associated with waves, including frequency, period, amplitude, and speed.
6.03 Sound Waves
In this video, we explore how the mathematics and concepts of waves apply to a specific type of wave: sound.
6.04 The Doppler Effect and Interference
In this video, we explore the Doppler effect, which modulates the perceived frequency of waves depending on the relative motion between source and observer.
6.05 Applications of Waves
In this video, we explore how the mathematics and concepts of waves apply in the everyday world.
7.01 Electric Charge
In this video, we define electric charge, conductors, and insulators.
7.02 Coulomb's Law
In this video, we define Coulomb's law and examine the interaction between two stationary, charged particles.
7.03 Electric Field
In this video, we define the electric field and field line conventions.
3.01 Math Skills
In this video, we review some of the necessary math skills for solving problems in Chemistry.
3.02 Graph Interpretation
In this video, we interpret data from graphs, and discuss direct and indirect relationships.
3.03 Recording Measurements
In this video, we discuss SI units, accuracy, and precision.
In this video, we discuss the Fahrenheit, Celsius, and Kelvin temperature scales.
3.05 Scientific Notation and Significant Figures
In this video, we use scientific notation and determine rules for significant figures.
3.06 Decimal Prefixes and Equalities
In this video, we convert units using SI prefixes and conversion factors.
3.07 Dimensional Analysis
In this video, we expand on the idea of conversion factors to solve dimensional analysis problems.
