Just last week, we added a new Integrated Physics and Chemistry (IPC) course to the Discovery Education Science Techbook™ for Texas. Built from the ground-up and developed specifically for Texas school districts, the new IPC course is fully aligned to the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) standards.
Now available for educators statewide, Science Techbook for Texas is a complete digital textbook featuring compelling video; interactive text; digital simulations and explorations; virtual and hands-on labs; and an interactive glossary with animations, audio and video. Through its adoption process, the Texas State Board of Education recently approved the use of the Discovery Education Science Techbook series as a core instructional resource for elementary, middle and high school science courses.
The new IPC course, and all courses within the Science Techbook, offer a variety of resources to support Spanish-speaking students. In addition to comprehensive literacy supports for English language learners and struggling readers, the IPC course also includes hundreds of Spanish language video segments, a multimodal interactive glossary with definitions in Spanish, and a Spanish reading path with text-to-voice capability.
All K-12 Discovery Education Science Techbook courses provide coverage of the TEKS and English Language Proficiency standards. In addition to the new IPC course, Science Techbook is currently available for K-8 science and high school courses including Biology, Chemistry, Earth and Space Science, and Physics.
