CONTINUATION OF LEARNING WHILE BUILDINGS ARE CLOSED

Here’s what teaching and learning will look like next week for teachers, students, and families:

  • On Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday (March 23–25), the Teaching and Learning team and principals will set up virtual preparation time for teachers.
  • On Wednesday (March 25), we are asking teachers and teams to reconnect with students and families to share plans for learning.
  • On Thursday (March 26), teachers will begin sharing opportunities for students to practice and reinforce academic content and skills using familiar tools currently used in their classrooms. For example, if your teacher uses Google Classroom already, he or she will continue to use that tool for sharing instructional materials.


During the planned suspension of normal school operations through April 5, students will not submit assignments for graded work. We want students to take advantage of these learning opportunities so they are ready to learn new material and skills after the two-week period.

Our Special Programs team will be working with campuses to support the needs of all students.

In the unit, students bring history to life by engaging in the inquiry process. They learn to generate research questions that guide their research plan. Students read, view, and listen to a variety of multimodal and digital informational texts. They evaluate the credibility of the sources and think critically about the author’s perspective. Students choose and research an event in Texas history. They use multiple sources to synthesize the information and share their knowledge with others. Students have choice in the format they use to present.
