New Updates in Fall of 2014
New Math TEKS
We are hard at work updating the 3-8 Math Books to meet the requirements of the new Math TEKS. When we began updating the books, we quickly realized that TEA not only moved TEKS around but fundamentally changed the wording and verbs for many of these student expectations. We have rewritten around 80% of each book. We expect the books to be shipping on September 1st. If you have budget constraints and need certain books prior to September 1st, please contact us through email or phone.
New Science Books
We have released Science Books for 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th grade along with Biology EOC. These books cover the TEKS for each grade level with background information, STAAR practice, open ended homework, journaling, hands-on activities and graphic organizers.
Coming soon English I and English II books
We are in the final stages of completing books for English I and English II EOC. For more information, contact us via email or phone.
Utilizing our 25 plus years of experience studying high stakes test material in Texas, we have produced materials which are no longer chasing the "test," but reaching for student understanding and mastery of the state mandated curriculum to the "depth of thinking" required for success on the STAAR. We updated our books with a focus on assessing each of the TEKS; hence, we have developed assessments for learning. The level of difficulty demonstrated by our materials is reflective of that required by each of the TEKS. The focus is on student understanding. By utilizing open-ended questioning, a teacher is able to evaluate the student's understanding of a concept, the analytical thinking, and ability to use multiple-choice questions to analyze right and wrong elements of a concept. Achieving mastery of the TEKS that are assessed for success vertically throughout a student's climb to college readiness, drives the state assessment as wells as the materials developed by GF Educators, Inc.
GF Educators, Inc. is proud to have the opportunity to serve you and the education community. Our goal is to provide you with the highest quality, on-target materials possible at a very reasonable price. As a part of the education community, we feel the need to produce products that are both useful and effective. With the Step Up to the TEKS series, we believe the goal of assessing the learning of the TEKS has been accomplished.
