REEL (Research Environmental Engineering Leadership)

  • We are excited to present a new innovative specials class to our De Zavala students called REEL. 

    The basis for REEL for our K-5 students is the National Academy of Sciences' Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) as presented in their Framework for K-12 Science Education.
    Using the NGSS Framework for K-12 Science Education developed by the National Research Council, ( together with the TEKS, our K-5 REEL students will be working with the three major recommended dimensions:
    1. Scientific and engineering practice
    2. Crosscutting concepts that unify the study of science and engineering through their common application across fields
    3. Core ideas in four disciplinary areas: physical sciences; life sciences; earth and space sciences; and engineering, technology, and applications of science
