  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. What's the Problem with Your Math?
    Math is about relationships-the relationships between numbers, events, objects, systems, and cycles; it is, of course, about calculating; and it is also about figuring things out in and organized way. Participants will engage in activities that encourage problem solving in the mathematics curriculum.

  3. A Vertical Look at Geometry and Measurement (K-5)
    Discover essential, practical ideas for helping students cultivate habits of mind that lead to success in geometry and measurement. This training will focus on the learning progression of the concepts of geometry and measurement from Kinder to 5th grade. This content knowledge will assist teachers in filling gaps by better understanding how these concepts build on each other from one grade level to the next. Teachers will analyze assessment items from TEA's Rapid Assessments and STAAR in order to identify the understandings, vocabulary, and rigor needed for effective geometry and measurement instruction.

  4. 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.

  5. Laying the Foundation for Mathematics
    You can not build a great building on a weak foundation.  Much is the same for mathematicians.  We must give students the strongest foundation possible in order to enable them to become strong mathematicians.  Early Childhood Teachers in grades PK-1st will gain content knowledge that will allow them to help their students build a strong foundation in mathematics. A wide variety of content will be covered including mathematical process standards, number and operations, algebraic reasoning, geometry and measurement and data analysis.  Several MAKE and TAKE activities will be practiced and created during the workshop. 

  6. 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.

  7. Building Math Vocabulary for English Language Learners

    Research shows that vocabulary knowledge is the single best predictor of ELLs academic achievement. This training delves into Marzano’s Six-Steps Process in building academic vocabulary. Participants will engage in strategies and techniques that support English Language Learners in learning math vocabulary. These strategies will provide mathematics teachers with effective practices for incorporating the TEKS and the ELPS in daily instruction to increase the likelihood of ELLs success in the mathematics classroom.


  8. Differentiate & Motivate with Math Stations

    When do I meet with small groups to provide interventions? What do I do with the rest of the class while I meet with small groups? Math stations give the teacher the opportunity to work with small groups while other students work on activities that give them multiple ways to review, practice, and/or learn concepts based on their diverse abilities. Implementing stations in your own classroom takes work. It takes time, persistence, consistency, and planning of purposeful station activities all students can productively engage in without you.

    This workshop outlines and details why math stations are necessary, how to organize and manage math stations, how to create purposeful and engaging station activities that empower students' knowledge, and how to get started! Participants will also have the opportunity to review sample station activities that could be used in the classroom.


  9. Math Academies
    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 develop problem-solving skills and a strong foundation of number sense and fluency.

    To register for this workshop,
    please contact your Campus Principal / Curriculum Director / Superintendent.

  10. 2019 Textbook Expo
    The Education Service Center, Region 2, invites all regional public school districts to participate in the 2019 Textbook Expo at the ESC-2 facility in Corpus Christi. The event will give public school district staff the opportunity to visit with textbook and instructional materials publishers and view samples of products to facilitate the textbook adoption process.

    The full list of subjects and courses for which the materials will be used is available at http://www.tea.state.tx.us/index2.aspx?id=25769804190

    For additional information, contact Jodi Ferguson or Melissa Morin.

  11. 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.

  12. Introduction to TI-Nspire Technology
    Come learn the TI-Nspire basics! Learn how TI-Nspire technology facilitates reasoning, sense-making and understanding in an interactive mathematics classroom. Ready to use activities and strategies will be shared as participants navigate the apps an associated menus of this powerful tool.

  13. Proportional Reasoning
    Proportional Reasoning for the Middle School.

  14. Intermediate TI-Nspire Training

    This workshop focuses on best practices for implementing TI-Nspire technology in the classroom. Topics include creating self-checking documents, teaching with TI's activities, creating interactive documents, and STAAR strategies.

    This class assumes a basic familiarity with the Nspire environment. We will assume teachers are able to use the calculator and graphing apps fluently as well as open, close and save documents. Attendance of the introductory level course is NOT required.


  15. Elevate, Enhance and Enlighten Your Math Classroom with a Digital Escape Room!

    Learn how to create a highly collaborative and engaging “Digital Escape Room” challenge for your students. The only tools required are a computer and access to your Google Drive! Use one of our computers or bring your own device to explore this unique approach to leveraging technology to engage with math content.

    Digital Escape Rooms are inclusive, easily differentiated, foster group collaboration and problem solving, and can even be used as STAAR/EOC review. You will walk away with a free example, the methodology behind the use of these games, ideas, and step-by-step instructions to create your own!


  16. 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.
