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.
Escribir una carta persuasiva
This lesson was intended to be delivered in a face-to-face classroom environment. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic of 2020, this lesson has been modified from its original design to be executed in a virtual setting.
This virtual lesson was designed to prepare students to communicate familiar topics in the presentational writing mode in the target language. Students will act as a college advisor and respond to a prospective student’s email regarding housing options. Students will then peer evaluate each other’s writing and provide meaningful feedback using a rubric.
Rise Over Run! Let’s Have Fun!
Students will collaboratively practice identifying and graphing slope and y-intercept.
Equations in the Real World
Students will create and solve equations with variables on one side before comparing the equation with another to determine at what rate they will be equal.
Analyzing Author’s Purpose: Argumentative Text
Students will read a pre-Civil War speech and write author’s purpose statements using the argumentative verbs explain, urge, convince, and encourage.
How Newton's Laws Apply Every Day
Students collaboratively determine how the characteristics of a real-world job correlate with each of Newton’s Laws and why that is relevant to their own lives.
Newton's Second Law
Students will work in partners to investigate Newton’s second law by testing a series of experiments with varying conditions.
Texas Courses Update
Professional development courses for CPE credit are transitioning to a new course platform—TEALearn; professional development courses are no longer available through the Texas Gateway. As part of this process, TEA has reviewed courses that were previously offered through the Gateway. This resource provides an update on current status and availability of Classic Gateway courses.
New Resource Link to Test
Here's the new resource link to test. Let's hope this is a go!
Properties: Extensive and Intensive
Given descriptions or illustrations of properties, students will determine whether the property is chemical or physical, and if it is physical, if it is intensive or extensive.
Periodic Table Families
Given descriptions or specific element groups, students will use a Periodic Table to relate properties of chemical families to position on the table.
Solids, Liquids, and Gases
Given descriptions, scenarios, or illustrations, students will distinguish between the compressibility, structure, shape, and volume of solids, liquids, and gases.
Given descriptions, scenarios, or illustrations of properties, students will distinguish between pure substances and mixtures.
Atomic Theory: Electromagnetic Spectrum
Given a diagram of the electromagnetic spectrum, students will relate the frequency to type of wave produced.
Given descriptions or illustrations, students will use the light and energy formula to solve for frequency, wavelength, or energy.
Average Atomic Mass
Given descriptions, scenarios, or diagrams, students will calculate the average atomic mass by weighted average.
Given illustrations, diagrams, or descriptions, students will identify alpha, beta, or gamma radiation.
Periodic Table Trends
Given descriptions, scenarios, or groups/series of elements, students will use the Periodic Table to relate the size of the atomic radii, electronegativity, and ionization energy of elements to their position on the chart. Students will need to be familiar with the trends of the Periodic Table.
