Secondary Mathematics Leadership Meeting February 20, 2014
AGENDA Welcome Announcements Ice Breaker Scope & Sequence Review Breakouts Middle School – Library High School – Cafeteria Evaluations & Closure
FACT, FICTION, or TRICK STATEMENT 1)The Curriculum Department needs teachers to volunteer for curriculum writing for the new MS and HS TEKS. (Fiction: teachers will be paid to provide input and feedback) 2)The importance of the Department Chair’s role will be heightened during this period of implementing new MS and HS TEKS. (Truth: since we will not have trainings specific to the new TEKS, attendance at DC meetings is crucial for learning about and sharing important information needed for student success on STAAR.)
FACT, FICTION, or TRICK STATEMENT 3)The only STAAR mathematics test on which students may use calculators is the Algebra I EOC. (Trick Statement: this is currently true, but beginning in 2014-15, Grade 8 Math STAAR REQUIRES the use of hand-held graphing calculators.) 4)The district-wide AP Initiative applies only to AP Calculus. (Fiction: it also involves using SpringBoard as a resource in middle school mathematics classrooms.)
FACT, FICTION, or TRICK STATEMENT 5)The Curriculum Department provides curriculum only for the schools involved with the PowerUp initiative. (Trick Statement: The PowerUp curriculum is available for all teachers to use; the new MS curriculum planning guides will include PowerUp connections as well.)
DOOR PRIZES Please Return all materials to the table bags. Remember to pick up any trash that may be in or around your area.
BREAKOUT SESSIONS Middle School Library High School Cafeteria
2013 – 2014 Write: New Curriculum Teach: Current TEKS + Transition Content Test: Current TEKS 2014 – 2015 Teach: New TEKS Test: Overlap Content 2015 – 2016 Teach: New TEKS Test: New TEKS TRANSITION TIMELINE to the New 6 – 8 TEKS HS Transition is one year behind MS.
IMPLEMENTING the NEW 6 – 8 TEKS What’s being taught when? A vertical look at the new TEKS: Proportional and Algebraic Reasoning Order the TEKS strips onto the blank template: grade 8 at the top to grade 3 at the bottom Any surprises? Ah-ha’s?
HB 5 UPDATE Prescribed graduation plan for 2014-15 HISD students will default to endorsement plan All freshmen (2014-15) other grade levels may opt in for endorsements Only STEM and multidisciplinary have above Algebra II requirement Algebra II is considered an advanced math
