HISD eLearn provides new ways for teachers and administrators to grow professionally

Every teacher remembers how intimidating that first year in a classroom can be. You may be an expert in your subject – but how do you engage, discipline, differentiate, and teach all of your students at the same time?

HISD has just unveiled a new online treasure trove of resources to help teachers and administrators organize, plan, and teach more effectively – HISD eLearn. HISD eLearn contains instructional videos, effective practices, professional learning communities, planning resources, online learning courses, and tools to differentiate instruction. No matter how you feel you can improve your teaching, you can find a tool to help you on eLearn.

Be sure to check out the Curriculum Preview Professional Learning Community, a series of short videos that focus on hard-to-learn curriculum standards (available for select grade levels and content areas). The videos will help teachers incorporate effective planning and instruction for the new grading cycle.  Also, coming up in November is the “EVAAS Leadership Series,” a live 5-part webinar on the HISD value added system of assessment.

Elementary teachers and administrators received emails with enrollment information on the new system on October 20. Emails for all secondary teachers and administrators will go out November 9, and other instructional staff will receive notification later in November. For more information about HISD eLearn, please contact Lance Menster at
