Developing Leadership Capacity for the Math TEKS

This workshop is designed to give math teams, coaches and mentors the tools they need to support their colleagues in implementing standards-based assessment and instruction to support the TEKS for Mathematical Processes and Mathematical Content effectively in their schools.

In this session, participants will:

  • Learn what to look for in a standards-based mathematics classroom
  • Review Exemplars assessment rubric
  • Assess student work to build reliability and validity with Exemplars assessment rubric
  • Assess student work at the individual/class/campus/district level to determine:
    • What we know our students know;
    • How well our students are performing;
    • Why our students are performing this way;
    • What our students need to relearn, practice;
    • What we learn about our teaching;
    • What our next steps are for these students.

  • Discuss possible actions for supporting peers
  • Use samples of student work to share strategies (questioning, connections, representation, mathematical language, etc.) necessary to raise students to the Practitioner level (meeting the standard) and beyond
  • Begin/Develop an assessment system that supports the Math TEKS
  • Select performance tasks for working portfolios
  • Select performance tasks for assessment portfolios
  • Select grade-level/school/district anchor papers
  • Discuss calibration/scoring sessions
