Tool # 9

TEA requires districts to teach specific TEKS in Math.  Curriculum is designed to assure that children master these concepts in specific order and apply them correctly in real life situations.   Holding students accountable through the working stations or centers helps to insure that we comply with these requirements.  

Two years ago my teaching partner and I were awarded a grant tp [ircjase technology for our classroom (I/Pads and minis {Dells}.   We devised protocols for their use, for the monitoring of students at stations and learning in small groups.   Competitions such as found at Magna High and Manipula Math and many interactive games, etc. have been utilized and aided us in getting ahead of the curve in our classroom.   We will continue to expand the use of technology with these devices so that the students will master the objectives set by the district to cover the TEKS set by TEA.
