Math: Maximizing STAAR Review Time (Algebra)

  • ESC Region 13
  • 6 CPE Credits
  • $100

Don’t try to cram a whole year’s worth of instruction into a few days of review. Instead, learn to maximize your classroom review time by identifying TEKS clusters of the highest need, and create a plan that will effectively address these needs within a reasonable amount of time. In this workshop, we will:

  • Review regional data used to determine the areas of highest need.
  • Identify the key components for this year’s STAAR test using the STAAR Blueprint and examples of the new field test items.
  • Explore ready-to-use classroom strategies and resources to support active, hands-on review.
  • Create a plan for implementation that spirals skills and supports differentiation

This workshop will be based on patterns observed in regional data with regard to student performance on the Algebra I SEs. In this workshop, we will explore how to make rich mathematical discussions part of your daily routine. This workshop will provide you with great resources and include activities that you can implement in your classroom immediately!
