Join us for an all-new academy!
November 15-16, 2016 | Birdville ISD
Create a More Effective Learning Environment
Texas ASCD is partnering with the International Center for Leadership in Education to offer a new two-day academy primarily designed for teachers. Learn how to use the Rigor/Relevance Framework and align it to T-TESS to develop Quadrant D lessons!
Texas educators will be engaged in an application-based learning experience using the rigor, relevance and engagement framework by Bill Daggett. The Rigor/Relevance Framework is a tool to plan curriculum, deliver instruction, and monitor progress. The uniqueness of this two-day academy will be providing educators time and support to design student tasks that will align to accomplished and distinguished levels of the T-TESS evaluation.
• understand and apply the Rigor and Relevance Framework in the teaching and learning
• design student tasks by the use of rubrics; and,
• make connections between the Rigor and Relevance Framework and the T-TESS rubrics in
order to grow teachers into Accomplished and Distinguished practitioners.
