T.E.A.M.S. that Win: Effective Practices for Meeting the Needs of Diverse Learners in Elementary Reading/Language Arts & Social Studies
Elementary Grades K-5

“Teaching Engaging Academics and Motivating for Success” (T.E.A.M.S.) is a four-day professional development series that applies the Universal Design for Learning (UDL) and the Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) frameworks to content specific Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) instruction and classroom design. The series will be presented by a Region 4 collaborative team whose expertise includes classroom management, access to the general curriculum, reading/language arts and social studies. Participants will be provided with effective research-based skills and strategies which address diverse learners’ access to the general curriculum. Knowledge and skills learned will support student achievement impacting STAAR™ success.

The four days will integrate classroom management strategies with the UDL principles of multiple means of engagement, representation, and action and expression. Classroom teachers are encouraged to build personal capacity by bringing a lesson which can be used to implement these strategies. Between each session, participants are asked to collect information based on implemented strategies. District and/or campus teams (such as, but not limited to, general and special education teachers, behavior specialists, campus/district leaders, diagnosticians, and LSSPs) are encouraged to attend. Session and materials costs are partially funded through state or federal grants.

Due to the cumulative nature of the content, participants must commit to attending all of the dates in the training series.
