Curriculum Planning Tools: Analyzing the TEKS–a Heavy or Light Touch with Course Organizer


According to Marzano, a guaranteed workable curriculum may be the single largest factor that determines how many students in a school will learn critical content. School leaders and teachers need to be able to identify essential content standards for developing intellectual skills including higher order thinking. In this interactive session, participants will analyze the TEKS to identify crucial Standards all students must learn. They will also generate course and unit level questions, classify significant concepts, and construct formative assessments or tasks to evaluate student learning. Participants will create a graphic organizer known as the Strategic Instruction Model Course Organizer during the planning process as a course or class curriculum road map for use with students.
