CSCOPE Curriculum is advertised to be aligned with the Texas State standards called TEKS, and to be a comprehensive material. In fact, the CSCOPE curriculum is said to be all teachers need to know what they are to teach and when.
This is called CSCOPE SCOPE and Sequence.
I’ve studied the CSCOPE 5th grade science scope about forces. It is not comprehensive. As to being aligned with the TEKS, I don’t think listing the TEKS qualifies for being aligned.
One part of the CSCOPE Scope is called vertical alignment. I have taken only the 5th grade science TEKS and Specificities for you to evaluate. Is it CSCOPE or CSCAM? I say CSCAM.
What do you think? Are the CSCOPE Directors selling CSCOPE or a CSCAM?
