What is the difference between Pre-Advanced Placement and general education classes?

Teachers and students may add depth, complexity through the modification of the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skill (TEKS) concept. The application of depth may be done through the language of the discipline, details, patterns, trends, unanswered questions, rules and ethics. Complexity may be added through big ideas or generalizations, and different points of view. The depth and complexity attributes are based on Dr. Sandra Kaplan's work. Pacing is based on the ability to compact curriculum for learners or through their acquisition of knowledge. Thus, allowing the teacher to maximize the opportunities for added depth and complexity.
