Update as of January 12, 2021

lead4ward takes seriously our responsibility to protect educators and the children they serve from the highly contagious omicron variant of the coronavirus. With the rise in COVID cases expected to peak in Texas in late January/early February, lead4ward feels the best way to safeguard participants is to move the conference to virtual. In this environment, you can still count on lead4ward to challenge you to see things from a different perspective, to look at a problem in a new way, to slow down your thinking and speed up your learning, and to discover new ways you can prepare your students for review.


As we enter the final season of the STAAR test we know, what better time to reunite and rock review?! At this year’s review conference, we will explore ways to energize learners, pick priorities, and organize a review plan to address common learning mistakes. We will model strategies, plan with the tried and true 10-day review framework, and deepen understanding of lead4ward resources that specifically facilitate effective review. If you have attended a lead4ward review conference in the past, you will see some similarities throughout the conference but will also have access to new material – specifically, a targeted instructional strategy playlist for review.

The lead4ward Rockin’ Review Conference will give a campus team an opportunity to learn together. We recommend that you pull together a rock star team that consists of a campus leader, a special educator, and at least one teacher from each content area.

Participants will choose to attend one of the following sessions: leader, math, reading, science, social studies, or special education. Participants will remain in their selected content area throughout the conference.

In the leader and content breakout sessions, leaders and teachers will:

  • focus review on priority TEKS clusters
  • leverage strategies to engage learners
  • explore hands-on/minds-on activities that provide meaningful practice
  • activate student voice to create engaging review
  • empower students to analyze and take ownership of common errors

In the special education breakout session, special educators in inclusive settings will:

  • prioritize content and vocabulary for review with students with disabilities
  • anticipate and proactively intervene around common student mistakes
  • turn effective learning strategies into allowable designated supports
  • incorporate the use of supplemental aids throughout review
