UPDATE: Due to COVID-19, we are postponing the PD2Teach Challenge until the fall of 2020. Submissions will be due by November 1st, and we will announce our winners in January of 2021!
PD2Teach is a project from TCTELA supporting teachers and curriculum leaders in the implementation of the new ELAR/SLAR TEKS for K-8 beginning in 2019-2020 and continuing with high school TEKS in 2020-2021.
A team of dedicated teachers and instructional coaches will gather to hold professional conversations about the new standards and will discuss how their classrooms will evolve under the new strands and the new standards. Grounding their discussion in literacy research, this team offers their classroom experiences as examples, will highlight student successes they are already seeing in their classrooms across Texas, and will outline how they are using the standards to create a stronger, literate Texas graduate on the path toward both college and career.
Take the challenge!
Submit your entry here!
PD2Teach is available directly to teachers through an online digital portfolio that will have accompanying downloadable guides outlining the resources and texts used to forge this exciting path toward the new standards.
