Access Curriculum Together (ACT) supports school districts in targeting grade level mathematics TEKS using brain-based problem solving instruction with the depth, rigor and complexity required for success on the state assessment using concrete, semi-concrete and abstract lessons to an increasingly diverse population of students.
ACT is unique. ACT blends the expertise of a middle school math specialist's knowledge of TEKS, vertical alignment of TEKS and data driven interventions with the expertise of a special education specialist's ability to make curriculum accessible to all students. The ACT team has discovered that everyone wins when educators' unique combination of resources are shared. ACT represents the "how" of effective instruction for diverse learners.
Access Curriculum Together yields positive results for school districts in need of improved accountability ratings.
Professional development and consultation is available for grades K-8 math educators. We provide training in grade level instruction and assessment that aligns with state standards and addresses post secondary readiness. Training and consultation related to the new Math TEKS, vertically aligned mathematics instruction, data driven interventions, coaching mathematics, model instruction, use of word walls, use of math manipulatives, brain-based strategies, co-teaching, Tier II and TIER III interventions, effective questioning, are available and much more.
Who Do We Serve?
Access Curriculum Together (ACT) serves districts, campuses, teachers, parents and paraprofessionals with teachers and administrators of K-8 students in creating a learning environment where all students are included and expected to reach grade-level mathematics standards.
Math ACT Workshop Series
Math ACT is an innovative, research-based series of collaborative trainings designed to instruct teachers on the “how” of teaching ALL students within the general education setting.
Teaching the NEW Mathematics TEKS with Accountability in Mind
Access Curriculum Together (ACT) coaches teachers on how to address accessible curriculum for increasing test scores and improving accountability ratings. Making the curriculum accessible to students and developing skills through concrete, semi-concrete, and abstract processes, students experience mastery of grade level TEKS, increasing confidence as concepts are built. Rigor becomes less intimidating as students accept challenging problem solving situations through collaboration and discussion, building intrinsic knowledge. Students know that their unique entry points will be addressed through manipulatives, visual supports, vocabulary, and supplemental aids.
Register your teachers for MATH ACT for bona fide results in the classroom. Training and consultation are offered in the areas of student achievement, student progress, closing performance gaps, and post-secondary readiness. Aligned with Texas Education Agency (TEA) Accountability System.
