Serving our students with disabilities can be an extra challenge in a virtual environment. This blog post, originally published in July 2019, will help you map out your supports for students with disabilities.
You may be aware of Texas OnCourse’s College and Career Readiness Curriculum, formerly referred to as the Middle School Curriculum Guide. This curriculum is designed to help educators teach college and career readiness in grades 6–8. To date, this resource has helped over 1,950 Texas educators meet TEKS requirements by using plug and play middle school lesson plans designed to make career exploration fun.
Hi, all! We’ll be winding down these live videos soon as we all hopefully step away from screens for a few weeks over the summer. If you have any requests from us for future Facebook live updates, put them in the comments!
The school year may be winding down, but we know that the job of a school counselor (like that of many educators) is year-round. To help you finish strong with resources at-the-ready, we’ve compiled a list of the most helpful free online school counseling tools, specifically for middle and high school counselors and their students.
This academic year has been unlike any other for students around the world. In particular, students making big transitions in the fall (like entering high school as a freshman!) are facing unique challenges.
We can’t imagine what it’s like for our students to be out of school and managing uncertainty as they prepare for a big transition.
So Texas OnCourse created a couple of short videos to help students prepare for a stellar freshman year, whether they’re headed to high school or college.
For many career and technical education (CTE) teachers, the sudden move to online learning is particularly challenging. CTE, after all, is often hands-on in nature. Here, we gather updates, tips and suggested practices, and resources into one place. Use them to supplement official guidance provided by your school or district. Our hope is to help you strengthen your online teaching skills as they relate to delivering CTE instruction remotely.
The current moment presents plenty of challenges as we figure out how to support, instruct, and counsel our students remotely. Among those challenges is how to communicate effectively when we’re not face-to-face. Fortunately, this is an obstacle that presents opportunities for growth and learning for our students, and ourselves.
