  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. 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? 

  3. CIRCLE Refresher Training

    This workshop is a refresher of the CIRCLE model. It has been designed for previous participate in the CIRCLE, TEEM and TSR grant.

  4. Texas Instructional Leadership (TIL) Data Driven Instruction - Online Course
    Data-Driven Instruction is a highly effective, research-based training that guides teachers and administrators to spend less time teaching their students what they already know and more time on what their students need. It also answers the questions, “How do I know if my students are learning? And if they aren’t, what do I do? Based on the protocol developed by Paul Bambrick-Santoyo and described in his books Driven by Data 2.0 and Leverage Leadership 2.0, TIL DDI advocates for a deeper analysis of student work.

  5. 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.

  6. Multiplication and Division Computation Strategies that Build Comprehension: Grades 3-5
    I can do it, but I can't explain it...this workshop teaches multiplication and division 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. Teachers will engage in multiple computation strategies for multiplication and division and 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. 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

  8. Bridging the Gaps: Fractions (grades 2-5)

    Fraction concepts and fraction computations are two areas where students are likely to struggle due to COVID-19 school closures. After March, students typically deepen understanding of fractions, and at some grade levels, new fraction content is introduced.

    In order to support teachers as they prepare and plan for instruction in these areas, this training will focus on:

    • identifying potential fraction gaps;
    • unpacking previous grade level standards that align with these gaps;
    • engaging in vertically aligned fraction activities and discussions; and
    • creating pre-assessments that will inform instruction for teachers when planning their fractions units.

  9. Bridging the Gaps: All Operations (grades 2-5)

    Due to COVID-19 school closures, students are likely to struggle in the area of All Operations. After March, students typically deepen understanding of operations, and at some grade levels, new content in this area is introduced.

    In order to support teachers as they prepare and plan for instruction, this training will focus on:

    • identifying potential All Operations gaps;
    • unpacking previous grade level standards that align with these gaps;
    • engaging in vertically aligned All Operations activities and discussions; and
    • creating pre-assessments that will inform instruction for teachers when planning their All Operations units.

  10. Sketching Standards Through M&Ms!
    Visual representations can help learners and doers of mathematics deepen their understanding.  "Sketching Standards"  sessions are math teacher-centered monthly opportunities that will help them transform a written/verbal standard (TEKS) into a visual/pictorial form.  Teachers will dive into each standard in order to truly experience the concept.  As a result, the student expectation will become an engaging visual experience that will help increase student engagement. Each month, teachers will collaborate to truly "show" what the standard means.

  11. TEKS Resource System: Covid-19 GAP Tool Implementation

    TEKS Resource System team has designed the COVID-19 Gap Implementation Tool for district considerations for all core content areas. This session will focus on the Math Tool. Whether your district decided to teach review concepts or teach new concepts during those last 9 weeks, the depth of concept expectations within the units may not have been met by all students. Join us to learn how to use the components, their intended uses, and how to plan to meet the needs of your students. 



  12. Learning Mats for MATH

    Give students the opportunity to organize their thoughts and demonstrate their thinking! Learning mats are visual representations to aid students in developing true conceptual understanding of mathematics. Participants will take away mats created for their mathematics classrooms to be utilized immediately. These math learning mats can be utilized in whole group, small group, collaborative groups, or math stations.  Student thinking will be visible to discuss their mathematical thinking and dive into content knowledge deeper. Increase student retention by allowing students to be the doers and talkers of mathematics!

    Time: 9:00 AM - 11:00 AM (virtual)

  13. GAP Game Plan for MATH Success!

    Map a visual game plan for weak math TEKS and gaps. During this session, participants will focus on instructional opportunities and games that engage students. These strategies will help mistakes become opportunities to develop mastery level achievement.  Participants will leave this workshop with a structured math gap game plan, pre-assessments to address the needs of gaps, and instructional strategies to address hard to teach standards.

    Time: 9:00 AM - Noon (virtual)


  14. Talk the Talk with Number Talks!

    Mathematical development is INCREASED with an ability to work flexibly with numbers. Join us to develop your number talk routine to assist with the cognitive thinking of your virtual or face to face classroom.  Begin or refine your number talk skills to improve Strand 1 Numbers & Expressions, and Strand 2 Operations & Algebraic Relationships. We will design purposeful number talks and watch actual classroom implementation based on the works of Sherry Parrish, Cathy Humphreys, & Ruth Parker.

    Time: 9:00 - Noon (virtual)
