Real-world performance tasks are well suited to meet the educational goals of the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills. They provide hands-on opportunities for students to engage in AUTHENTIC PROBLEM-BASED learning that builds future-ready skills
Defined Learning provides an online library of K-12 problem-based lessons that align to the TEKS. Each task is based on a situation in a relevant career and provides opportunities for students to deepen understanding and apply their knowledge in real-world scenarios. We provide all of the resources teachers need to implement high-quality tasks including grade-specific lessons, guidance documents, and robust professional development on Defined Learning and effective teaching strategies for PBL within the classroom.
Here are a few of our teachers’ favorite PROJECTS THAT ALIGN TO THE TEKS for Science that you can use (FREE) in your classroom this year:
“Through Defined Learning’s real-world performance tasks, teachers can engage their students in meaningful learning and authentic assessment – and that is the best preparation for the world outside of school.”
