  Professional Development  
     
     
  TEXTEAMS is a TEKS/Standards-based Professional Development Program for elementary, middle, and high school mathematics and science educators in Texas  
     
 

TEXTEAMS Leaders must demonstrate a deep knowledge base in the teaching and learning of mathematics or science, including a thorough understanding of mathematics content.

Leaders are either experienced in or are interested in providing high-quality professional development that supports the implementation of the TEKS. Becoming a Leader requires a personal commitment to participate in and to provide quality professional development to Texas educators.

  As TEXTEAM Leaders we have completed the following Institutes:  
     
 
Rethinking Middle School Mathematics: Algebraic Reasoning Across the TEKS
 
     
  This institute highlights the algebraic"habits of mind" called for in the TEKS for middle school mathematics by building and making connections between concrete, verbal, numeric, graphic, and symbolic representations of relationships between quantities. The institute explores patterns and problems that lead to the development of algebraic thinking skills.  
 

 

 
 
Rethinking Middle School Mathematics: Numerical Reasoning Across the TEKS
 
     
  The Rethinking Middle School Mathematics: Numerical Reasoning Across the TEKS institute assists teachers in bridging the gap from students' understanding of whole numbers to the complex understanding of the rational number system and numerical reasoning required by the TEKS and TAKS. Participants engage in activities and discussions that promote the teaching, learning, and assessment of numerical reasoning. Using multiple representations, appropriate technology, and concrete models, the institute broadens and deepens teacher content knowledge and instructional strategies. The Rethinking Middle School Mathematics: Numerical Reasoning Across the TEKS institute focuses on an in-depth examination of the relationship between fractions, decimals, percents, and rational number operations.  
     
 
Rethinking Middle School Mathematics: Proportionality Across the TEKS
 
     
  The TEKS call for an increased emphasis on proportional relationships across middle school mathematics curriculum. This institute focuses on the development of the properties, language, and representations of proportional relationships that arise from number, operation, algebra, probability, statistics, measurement, and geometry.  
     
 
Algebra I: 2000 and Beyond
 
 
  The Algebra I: 2000 and Beyond institute assists teachers in bridging the gap from students' concrete understanding of arithmetic to the functions-based algebra called for in the TEKS and TAKS. Participants engage in activities and discussions that promote the teaching, learning, and assessment of algebra for everyone. Using multiple representations, appropriate technology, and concrete models, the institute broadens and deepens teacher content knowledge and instructional strategies. The Algebra I:2000 and Beyond institute focuses on an in-depth examination of foundations of functions and linear functions. Additionally, quadratic and exponential functions are explored.  
     
 
Algebra Assessments : Practiced-Based Professional Development
 
     
  This institute utilizes and examines student work from TEKS - based Algebra I classrooms. Participants analyze student work to evaluate the level of student understanding. Instructional strategies to address student needs are generated and discussed. Participants gather student work on selected assessment tasks from their own classroom. Classroom, campus and district level implementation is addressed as it relates to TEKS and TAKS.
