MPACT 2013 has ended

The Curriculum & Instruction Department of Manor ISD is pleased to announce MPACT.  Through MPACT, learners will be inspired to impact our students, exchange ideas with other teacher leaders, administrators, and community partners; and learn ways to engage and motivate our diverse student population. This teaching and learning institute is appropriate for all of us because we are interested in "Impacting Student Achievement Through Engaged, Aligned Classrooms."  

We encourage you to arrive early for check in to get your swag bag and to start your day networking with your fellow MISD educators before the sessions begin . Click here to download a pdf version of the full progam for MPACT. It will provide you with tips on how to make the most of your day. Additionally, SCHED Planner is the tool you will use to build your personal itinerary for MPACT. Most sessions are designed for any audience and  sessions are faciliated by your peers and some guest speakers. If you are unsure how to register, watch this video.

Star the sessions that you would like to attend. Choose only ONE session per timeslot. It will be important that you bring your technology since we will not have paper copies available and any updates to sessions and session locations will be available on this site only. Remember to bookmark the mobile app or print your schedule before you come. Dress comfortably as there are some sessions that will be very interactive. Finally, check out all of our participating vendors and exhibitors. Stop by their tables to hear and/or see what they have to offer. You never know what types of goodies you will pick up at their tables or what you may win at the end of the day.  See you at MPACT!

E06 - TARGET: A Reading Strategy With Results! LIMITED

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

When you atend this session, you will: 
• learn a new reading strategy to get students to think about what they are reading while they are reading .
• learn how to implement the strategy by using it in the workshop.
• exchange ideas on how to revise this strategy for your grade level.

By learning how to implement this reading strategy in the classroom you will help your students to think while reading. Every step of the strategy requires student participation. The TARGET strategy requires students to do a lot of writing while reading a passage. You will be able to see what they have written on their paper and be better prepared to focus on the concept(s) the student is still struggling with. This strategy can be altered for any grade level to implement TEKS. You will take this strategy back to your classroom and within weeks you should see a difference in your struggling readers and an increase in performance with your on level and above level readers.
