  1. Curriculum Directors Meeting
    Directors from Region 2 will meet regularly throughout the school year to share legislative updates, professional development opportunities, and network with one another.

    This is a closed meeting designed for Region 2 Curriculum Directors only.



  2. Early Childhood Math and Science Tools for the Classroom
    In this workshop, participants will utilize tools that can be used in math and science for children ages 3-6.  Become familiar with 5 frames, 10 frames, rekenreks, and science tools in order to increase engagement and understanding in math and science.  Participants will take away many activity ideas that can be easily implemented in the curriculum!

  3. Math Manipulative Mania

    Let’s unpack your math tools and explore the many different ways you can use them! Participants will have the opportunity to explore using math manipulatives in many different ways.  See how hands on learning will increase engagement, the use of math process skills, and your students’ ability to understand math concepts.



  4. Math Workshop and Guided Math
    Differentiation, student discourse and engagement are key elements to a successful mathematics classroom.  This session will provide training on the characteristics of math workshop.  We will discuss the twenty days of classroom culture and implementation of guided math.  This workshop will help create a vision of how math classrooms can be a space for providing ALL students with an opportunity to access mathematical concepts and skills.

  5. What's the Problem? Comprehending Word Problems in Mathematics, Grades 2-5
    Math word problems often pose a big challenge to students. For students who struggle with reading and comprehension, word problems are just a lot of meaningless words and numbers. This can also be true for those students who do not necessarily struggle. Are they problem solvers or just problem performers? In this session, teachers will engage in strategies and practices that offer scaffolds that can help enhance students' understanding of problem situations which can lead to more meaningful investigations.

  6. Fractions: From the Ground Up! (2-5)
    This workshop is vertically aligned and designed to build and/or enhance teachers' knowledge of the development and progression of concepts and skills around fractions from grades 1-5. Knowledge of these skills at each grade level will assist in developing a better understanding of the fraction concepts so that teachers can design effective fraction instruction that is scaffolded for purposes of closing student gaps. Participants will unpack the grade 1 to grade 5 fraction TEKS and engage in the use of strategies, models, tools/manipulatives and best practices.

  7. Proportional Reasoning
    Proportional Reasoning for the Middle School.

  8. Getting to Know the Math STAAR
    Teachers of all experience levels greatly benefit from this opportunity to dig into the make-up of the newly released STAAR tests. Participants spend time exploring and familiarizing themselves with many of the TEA resources that give teachers insight into the test format and content. We also spend time reviewing allowable accommodations. Teachers identify and study high priority TEKS based on regional data, and they also analyze released items that are related to those student expectations. Finally, the most recent STAAR-related TEA updates are debriefed.

  9. How to Teach Algebra 1 with the TI-Nspire

    With a particular emphasis on Reporting Category 2: Describing and Graphing Linear Functions, Equations, and Inequalities, teachers will explore activities that facilitate development of linear concepts in Algebra 1. 


    Technology can be a powerful lever for moving students’ understanding of linear concepts forward, and teachers will learn best practices for doing so.


    Common EOC strategies will also be reviewed.

     

  10. STAAR/EOC Stations for Mathematics
    Stations are a powerful format for differentiating instruction.  This session will focus on stations that prepare students for the STAAR/EOC.

  11. Getting to Know the Math STAAR: Grades 3-5
    Teachers of all levels of experience greatly benefit from this opportunity to dig into the make-up of the STAAR tests. Participants spend time exploring and familiarizing themselves with many of the TEA resources that give teachers insight into the test format and content. We also spend time reviewing allowable accommodations. Teachers identify and study high priority TEKS based on regional data, and they also analyze released items that are related to those student expectations.
