  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. ELAR One-Hour Writing Training Sessions
    In these trainings, participants will receive overviews of a topic and a quick mini lesson in order to offer instructional insight for clarity.

  3. Writing Process Series
    In this writing series, participants will learn how best support struggling writers who struggle with the writing process. 

  4. Infusing Differentiation and Inclusion in the ELAR Classroom
    Through this training, participants will understand how to fold differentiation and inclusion techniques into the ELAR classroom.  

  5. Best Instructional Practices for the ELAR Classroom
    Utilizing effective instructional strategies in the ELAR classroom is both crucial for reversing learning loss and achieving strong STAAR scores for at risk populations. Participants in this training will learn how to recognize and incorporate quality instructional choices when the opportunities present themselves. 

  6. The Fundamental 5: The Formula for Quality Instruction
    This workshop will focus on the five fundamentals of effective instruction based on Sean Cain's and Mike Laird's book. They are: (1) Framing the Lesson; (2) Work in the Power Zone; (3) Frequent, Small-Group, Purposeful Talk about the Learning; (4) Recognize and Reinforce; and (5) Write Critically. Participants will learn about strategies for implementing these five best practices, and discover how they interconnect in the classroom. The Fundamental Five is designed to help struggling and at-risk students thrive and compete in academic settings. Simultaneously, students who are more advanced and strong also experience success and achievements from these practices by elevating their thinking and learning to a deeper level.

  7. Using Writing to Improve Reading

    One often-overlooked tool for reading is writing.  Consistent writing time and evidence based instruction improves writing, but also reading fluency and comprehension. 

    In this session, participants will learn writing practices that will improve students' reading fluency and comprehension. This workshop will provide strategies to improve at-risk students' literacy skills.


  8. Closing the COVID gap for ELAR Students

    Both teachers and students are still experiencing the academic impact of COVID-19 related closures and disruptions. For ELAR, students may have regressed even further with their reading and writing skills, now known as "the COVID slide." Because of the recursive nature and vertical alignment of skills and concepts, the standards lend themselves to closing possible gaps at each grade level. This workshop aims to mitigate some of the effects of the ELAR COVID slide for the upcoming school year by recommending strategies and discussing how to make instructional decisions based on SEs that may require additional instruction.


  9. College Preparation Support
    This training prepares educators to support students who are interested in continuing their education. Resources, approaches and updates will be shared to give participants best instructional options. 

  10. Academics For Little Learners: Teaching Reading and Math in Early Childhood Special Education

    This training will review the research of reading and math skills children need by first grade, how to make accommodations for students with disabilities and strategies to teach academics to preschool aged children with disabilities.

    Participants will gain knowledge in providing instruction in the following academic areas:

    Early Reading Instruction

    Beginning Writing Skills

    Mathematics Instruction


  11. Reframing ELAR Instruction for Secondary Striving Learners
    When secondary striving learners are not thriving in reading and writing, the problems will continue to impede their progression as they continue through subsequent grade levels. Struggling students need a wide-range of efficient and concise strategies that emphasize the entire reading and writing processes. In this session, teachers will explore tools and ideas to help reach at-risk learners and encourage them to strive to be positive, independent readers and writers.

  12. One Size Does NOT Fit All

    Reading comprehension is essential for school success and is considered a critical outcome of early education. Students who struggle with reading need high-quality, direct, intensive instruction, or they will continue to lag behind their peers, and the achievement gap will widen.
