Teachers Preparing for New Academic Year at Curriculum Institutes

2012 July 26
by HISD Communications

Principals and other campus leaders got their first good look at our new curriculum during the Summer Leadership Institute in June, and now, thousands of our teachers are doing the same.

Educators say they like the solid foundation it gives them on which to build lessons as well as the flexibility it provides to accommodate all types of learners.

But the curriculum’s greatest impact is probably best summed up by Diquana Shields, a first-grade teacher from the Horn Academy who participated in a Curriculum and Assessment Institute at Lovett ES this week. She observed that “even if a child changes schools, we’re all teaching the same thing.”

And in a district where our ultimate goal is to provide every child with a consistently rigorous, quality education, that is wonderful to hear.
