TEKS, WOW, and TAKS

Midlothian ISD has a strong, philosophical and pragmatic foundation in Working on the Work Framework (WOW). It’s a very important part of who we are and what we do. So, how does WOW work in conjunction with the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS – our state’s curriculum) and the Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (TAKS – our state’s assessment tool)?

The answer our principals and other district leaders created is:

The TEKS are what students are expected to learn. The TAKS is one measure of student learning. WOW is the instructional bridge used to engage students by making meaningful connections resulting in authentic learning.
