Let’s rock review for STAAR at the third annual Rockin’ Review Conference! Rockin’ Review will focus on how to motivate students to engage with content that they may have struggled with earlier in the year. We will anchor on the content that is essential for kids to learn and address the highly tested concepts. We will explore NEW strategies and tools as well as deepen understanding of lead4ward resources, that specifically facilitate effective review.
The lead4ward Rockin’ Review Conference will give a campus team an opportunity to learn together. We recommend that a team consist of at least one teacher from each content area and a campus leader. We are excited to have leaders join the content sessions this year! Leaders will rotate through each content area session, and sessions will be structured so that all content areas keep the same pace throughout the day. Leaders will be given a schedule at check-in that will determine their rotation order. At the end of the day, a “leader huddle” will provide leaders with an opportunity to discuss and share what they learned. Content teachers will stay in their content session throughout the day.
In the breakout sessions, we will:
- focus review on priority TEKS clusters
- leverage content strategies to engage learners
- explore hands-on/minds-on activities that provide meaningful practice
- activate student voice to create engaging review
- plan your next steps
Let’s rock this!
save the date!
