    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. TCMPC - TEKS Resource System 101 (2020-2021)
    This professional development outlines the curriculum and assessment components of the TEKS Resource System. The workshop highlights tools such as the Year at a Glance (YAG), Vertical Alignment Document (VAD), Vertical Viewer, TEKS Clarification Document (TCD), Instructional Focus Document (IFD), TEKS Verification Document (TVD), Performance Assessment (PA) and Assessment Item Bank in all core content areas.

    The Administrator session is a half day training that will provide an overview of the teacher tools and the administrator tools.

    The content sessions are a full day.  Specialists will review the tools available for each area.  Teachers will be shown how to plan from the IFD and use the various tools to support their efforts.  Participants will be given the opportunity to plan for their upcoming school year.


  3. 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.

  4. 2020 Textbook Expo
    The Education Service Center, Region 2, invites all regional public school districts to participate in the 2020 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.

    For additional information, contact Jodi Ferguson or Melissa Morin.

  5. Building Math Skills Through Literature (K-3)
    Do you find yourself pressed for time to teach all concepts students need to know?  Are you looking for ways to engage your students in mathematical problem solving?  This workshop will give you effective ways to enhance student's mathematical thinking by incorporating math concepts into storytime.  Teachers will practice posing higher level, open-ended math questions related to stories while improving literacy skills.  Teachers will implement the ideas from this training and create grade specific math lessons for provided books that they will be able to take home. Each teacher will walk away with a set of 12 children's storybooks to use in their classroom!

  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 will also review allowable accommodations. Teachers will identify and study high priority TEKS based on regional data, and analyze released items that are related to those student expectations.

  7. Developing Numerical Fluency: Grades 2-5
    How do I teach number facts so that my students know them fluently? Fluency has little to do with memorization. Numerical fluency develops when students communicate their understanding and construct and share their strategies. During this training, participants will be introduced to ideas, techniques, and strategies that contribute to meaningful fluency for all students. Participants will learn about six processes for developing numerical fluency and engage in structures and activities for building fluency in addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division.

  8. 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.

  9. Moving 504ward Meeting
     A networking opportunity for all 504 coordinators, school counselors, Dyslexia specialists, Dyslexia teachers and Dyslexia evaluators to discuss legal updates, hot topics and share resources and data to support best practices and issues that may arise in 504.  

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

  11. 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!
