The Algebra I will curriculum consists of Sharyland ISDteacher developed Scope and Sequence. The 5E Learning Cycle Model will be implemented in Algebra I to insureRigor and Relevance.  The new state exam(STAAR/EOC) requires a more in-depth analysis of Algebra I.  Thus sequencing through unit basedinstruction will be used in conjunction with and not limited to Saxon and otherresources to ensure a higher level of cognitive learning and understanding ofAlgebra I.


CBA’s (CurriculumBased Assessments):

As per Sharyland ISD, CBA’s (CurriculumBased Assessments) will be administered.  A total of 2 CBA’s will be administered.  For the regular block classes which last onesemester in length, CBA 1will serve as the first semester exam.  CBA 2 will serve as the second semester examor final exam.  Reviews will beadministered for the CBA’s.  The purposeof the CBA’s is to get our students ready for the STAAR (EOC) Exam.  The STAAR (EOC) do count towards graduation.  Thus, the CBA’s hold a significant importancein the Algebra I Curriculum.


CourseCurriculum with respect to the new TEKS:

Within the next three years the course scope and sequencewill be adjusted to adapt to the new student expectations implemented by thestate.
