Slaying Instruction and Curriculum- One Unit at a Time

I am proud to say that the science units for Gilmer Elementary are almost complete. These units provide colored TEK breakdown, key concepts, key questions, vocabulary, TEKS resource system clarifications, and vital teacher background. Along with the units of study teachers will be provided with student resources, assessments, keys, and picture vocabulary. The task of completing all these documents has been a daunting task, but a task that will hopefully reduce teacher stress and provide for the opportunity for those teachers to participate in deeper PLC's.
