  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. eLesson Design

    This training session will focus on the "design" process for eLearning.

    We know what a instructional lesson should look like, but how can teachers take their original instructional lesson design and transform it into an "eLesson" for online instruction?

    This training will help prepare the teachers for transition to eLearning with some considerations:

    • timing and pace of learning online
    • discover ways to handle teacher instruction and recorded options to deliver instruction
    • strategies to focus on areas like content organization, implementation, communication, feedback, and digital assessments

  3. Virtual Math Manipulative Mania
    Let’s unpack your virtual math tools and explore different ways you can use them to provide math instruction for your students virtually! Participants will have the opportunity to explore using a variety of virtual math manipulatives that are available online for Free. Attendees will experience how virtual manipulatives give learners the same opportunity to make meaningful connections and see relationships as the result of their actions, just like a physical manipulative! Providing distance learning doesn't mean you can't use manipulatives.

  4. Math Academies - Blended Learning

    The Math Academies are designed to implement research-based mathematics achievement academies for Kindergarten through grade 3. The Kindergarten through grade 3 mathematics achievement academies will enhance teachers’ knowledge and skills so they can effectively teach students in primary elementary grades to achieve mathematical proficiency. The academies will deepen teachers understanding of research-based effective and systematic instructional practices in mathematics that they can use to help students become proficient problem solvers and support mathematical discourse to strengthen student voice.

    This training consists of a half day, face-to-face training, an online component, and a second half day, face-to-face training.

    *Teachers must have successfully completed a 3-day Mathematics Achievement Academy to register for this blended learning training.


  5. Number Talks
    Who do you think does the talking in number talks? If you said the teacher, you are wrong! Number talks are activities focusing on mental math strategies. Learn to help your students discover new strategies that will boost their number sense and ability to think flexibly about numbers. Improve the foundation for process skills needed to be successful in STAAR testing.

  6. Addition and Subtraction Computation Strategies, Grades 2-5
    I can do it, but I can't explain it...this workshop teaches addition and subtraction computational strategies teachers could use to help bring a real understanding of number relationships and the meaning behind the math for their students. These strategies can be viewed as the bridge students need to develop conceptual and procedural understandings that help lead to fluency and number sense. For students in the upper grades, these can be used as intervention strategies for those students who continue to struggle with the standard algorithm. Teachers will engage in multiple computation strategies for addition and subtraction. They will have the opportunity to practice applying the strategies to STAAR released items. This workshop also models Number Talks. Teachers will share their thinking about how they solved a problem using the strategies with the group.

  7. Gap Analysis for Mathematics due to COVID-19

    In this workshop, participants will identify gaps students may have in mathematics due to the COVID-19 distance learning. This session is designed to build and/or enhance participants’ knowledge of mathematics concepts and processes taught at the previous grade level. Knowledge of these foundational skills will assist in closing student gaps that may have been created as a result of COVID-19.  Teachers will engage in creating pre-assessments they will use to gather information regarding these critical questions: Where do we start with this year’s students? What gaps do my students have? What instructional adjustments need to be made to maximize student learning? 


  8. Let's Give Them Something to Talk About! Mathematical Discourse
    Research tells us that complex knowledge and skills are learned through the interaction of others.  Students can be flexible thinkers when it comes to mathematics.  In this workshop, participants will practice many activities to get students thinking and talking in the mathematics classroom.  Let's make math fun!

  9. Teaching with Desmos Technology

    Desmos is a website with a suite of teacher tools for leading students through engaging activities and learning experiences. Along with many ready to use activities, Desmos has tools that teachers can use to elevate their own lessons using an Activity Builder.


    In this workshop, teachers explore activities that Desmos considers best-practice examples of teaching with technology, and they will also experience activities that have been developed by fellow teachers. After getting a feel for the best practices and the website's potential, teachers will dig in and practice using Desmos' Activity Builder to create new lessons and enhance existing lessons.



  10. Proportional Reasoning

    Proportional Reasoning is a HUGE topic in the middle grades, and many times our students struggle with related concepts on STAAR assessments. In this workshop, teachers take time to pin down the big ideas in proportional reasoning, and then we work through engaging activities that challenge students' misconceptions and that bulk up those underdeveloped concepts. 

    Participants will be introduced to the ratio table and will explore using this simple tool to support proportional reasoning. Teachers will also take time to apply ratio tables to the most common types of proportion problems such as missing value and comparison problems.


  11. TEKS Resource System COVID-19 Gap Implementation Tool
    In March 2020, school districts across the state experienced school closure due to COVID-19. Although schools were closed, districts transitioned to online instruction. In order to support foundational understandings of concepts within the last nine weeks of 2019-2020, the TEKS Resource System team has designed the COVID-19 Gap Implementation Tool for district considerations during the 2020-2021 school year.
    This session provides an overview of the TEKS Resource System COVID-19 Gap Implementation Tool and shares how this tool could be used to consider potential gaps students may have so that they may plan accordingly for the 2020-2021 school year.
