Discover Texas is more than a name.
Discovery is a whole way of learning.
Research proves that students remember:
- only 10% of what they read
- 20% of what they hear
- 30% of what they see (pictures and other visual images)
- and just 50% of passive presentations (a movie, exhibit, or demonstration).
So why does most “schooling” rely on such ineffective methods?
When learning is ACTIVE–when students
…in short, when they discover knowledge for themselves, retention jumps to 70%-90%!
Discover Texas is all about helping students discover for themselves what’s meaningful and memorable about Texas history…and having fun in the process!
