Have you wanted to be more involved in the ELAR/SLAR TEKS revision process but just did not know how to do it? This workshop provides a platform for participants to express thoughts about the first draft of the revised ELAR/SLAR TEKS. Attendees will get a closer look at the TCTELA TEKS Forum and some of the most repeatedly deliberated discussion threads related to the ELAR/SLAR TEKS revisions. Participants will work in facilitated, grade band focus groups to engage in face-to-face dialogue related to these pivotal thread topics. Facilitators will capture the collaborative dialogue of each group to share with the SBOE and TEA, ensuring that the voices of ELAR/ SLAR teachers and professionals are heard.
