Premise #1: Every aspect of this Framework accelerates learning for students while simultaneously reducing work for teachers and administrators
Premise #2: The Framework keeps Teachers at the center of the Teaching and Learning process
Premise #3: The Framework is organically developed for Texas and designed to achieve Equity in every Science Classroom
Summit K12’s Dynamic Science Courses are built to the 2024 Science TEKS, SEPs, and ELPS. Our STAAR Resources will mimic the 2025-2026 Blueprints and online test experiences as they are released by the TEA.
Supporting the TEA Accommodations, Accessibility features, and Designated supports are an essential component in supporting our vision of providing Equity for all students. These solutions, along with built-in, vertically-aligned scaffolds and differentiated learning tools, enable you to confidently support 504, Special Education, and Emergent Bilingual students in compliance with state guidelines – representing 36% of Texas K-12 students.
The Dynamic Science Platform includes dozens of different ways to engage and motivate students.
Each course includes hundreds of opportunities to provide engaging content, videos, animations, interactives, simulations, virtual labs, virtual field investigations, interactive Flashcards, interactive questions, engaging STEM career exploratory activities, interactive Science Literacy eBooks, Interactive study guides, Avatars, and Student Top 10 tables.
Students at each grade level can strive to be on one of several top 10 tables at the Class, School, District, and State levels.
Top 10 Categories Include:
Step 1: Formative Assessment 1
Step 2: TEKS Video Lesson
Step 3: Vocabulary
Must Score at least 80% on the TEKS Vocabulary section in order for Formative Assessment 2 to unlock
Step 4: Formative Assessment 2
Formative Assessment 2 is a completely different set of items from Formative Assessment 1
The Concept Mastery Approach is a rigorous process teachers follow in order to help each student master both the Concepts and the Academic Vocabulary
Vertically-aligned scaffolds are built into the Teacher’s Guide and Student tables to differentiate and accelerate student learning and mastery
All content is organized by Category and by TEKS, making it easy to follow any scope and sequence
Includes over 40 graphic organizers
– Some are lesson, theme, or category specific
-16 generic templates
High Quality TEKS Lesson Videos and Animations bring Science to Life!
Unique set of items from the thousands of pre-set formative and summative assessment items already included in all of the lessons and assignments
Summit K12 Dynamic Science Design Differentiation and Acceleration are at the heart of everything we do. As our content teams begin to write a course for a specific grade level, they consider content vertically aligned one grade level above and scaffolded content at least 2 grade levels below. We create a comprehensive on grade level course, but embed the appropriate lower grade scaffolds and extension activities to support differentiation and acceleration.

HB4545 Courses are included in the 6th Grade and High School courses
The SEPs are embedded within every Dynamic Science Lesson and articulated in the TEKS Lesson Guides.
The course also includes a dedicated section where teachers can access SEPs specific lessons, practice, and activities that cross all TEKS lessons.
Enhance Science Learning and Mastery in 3rd-5th Grades
Seamlessly Blend the 2024 Science TEKS, SEPs, ELAR TEKS, and ELPS into single Science-Literacy lessons
Having students learn and reinforce their science content TEKS during their RLA block deepens their understanding of the content, while providing more robust and rich non-literary cross-curricular reading comprehension skills development.
Seamlessly Blending the 2024 Science, 2017 ELAR TEKS, SEPs, and ELPS into a single Science-Literacy lesson packs a lot of learning into a compressed period of time with little additional effort.
Differentiated Science Literacy is one possible answer to how we expand Science Instruction into 2 Blocks by enriching the RLA block with the 2024 Science Content standards, while better preparing students for the RLA STAAR 2.0 which will include 2024 Science TEKS content in their Informational Passages.
These resources include: Graphic Organizers, Science Cognates, Newcomer Resources, and Cross Curricular Resources.
