Lighthouse Initiative for Texas Classrooms

The International Baccalaureate Programme and the TEKS

The Lighthouse Initiative for Science Classrooms focuses on the Pre-AP* program and the science TEKS for the state of Texas.  One of the goals of the Pre-AP program is for students to develop the skills and learning techniques necessary for success in college. Another program, the International Baccalaureate (IB) Programme, has similar goals and has been adopted by some Texas schools either in addition to or as an alternative to the Advanced Placement Program.*

These Lighthouse resources can be used for the IB Middle Years Programme. The ideas and suggestions put forth on this site are consistent with the goals and mission statements of both AP* and IB.
