Six Week Planning with TEKS Resource System for 8th Grade Social Studies
Fourth Six-Weeks Grading Period

Within many of our districts, teachers are alone in planning instruction for their grade levels. Join us for this opportunity to come together with other teachers in 8th grade social studies to collaboratively plan for the upcoming 6 weeks, based on the common Scope and Sequences as presented in TEKS Resource Year at a Glance (YAG). We will use the IFD from TEKS Resource System to dig deeply into the content for the 6 weeks planning period to understand vocabulary, big ideas, and misconceptions to gain a better insight of the content for instructional planning. The session will be facilitated by Steve Hammons.  Call 903-575-2737 or email at if you have any questions.  Hope to see you there.

This is a half-day morning session.

Important Session Information:

This morning session will be spent looking at the various components inside TEKS Resource in helping teachers plan for the grading period.  Also, instructional strategies and activities to enhance the IFDs will be explored.  Teachers will also explore various supplemental resources that dovetail with TEKS Resource in designing an educationally optimal experience for students.  Focus will also be placed on how instruction and the TEKS (pre and post assessments) can be used to monitor progress toward success in the spring with state testing.  This session is ideal for new teachers in the field as well as teachers new to the curriculum.
