Review 2021: What's new for review?

Whether we have STAAR or are responsible for collecting local data to show evidence of learning, we know that the need to have engaging review doesn’t change. But, one thing we have learned from 2020 is that everything else can! Our Review 2021 Conference will explore new ways to assess where students are, prepare them for end-of-year assessments, and help you plan your next steps. We'll explore strategies and tools to make review meaningful, empower students to take ownership of their own learning, and use lead4ward resources for effective review.
The 2021 Review Conference will be offered virtually and gives a campus team an opportunity to learn together. We recommend that a team consist of at least one teacher from each content area, special educator, and a campus leader. Participants choose a 3-hour morning or afternoon session for their content area: leader, math, reading, writing, science, social studies, or special education. Participants will remain in their selected content area for the entire session.

What we'll cover

Format will include:

  • virtual keynote for all participants
  • virtual content and leader specific sessions
In the learning sessions, leaders and teachers 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
  • empower students to analyze and take ownership of common errors
  • plan your next steps
