Tracey Kling TAGT Experience

February 28, 2011

This past  November I went to the TAGT conference held in Fort Worth.  I was able to attend many informative classes.  The Pre Conference session I attended was Rigor without Rigor Mortis.  Robyn Jackson really clarified for me how to create more rigorous lessons for all students.  She not only explained what rigor is, but gave us things we could take back to our class to try.  On the other conference days, I attended a variety of classes.  The Texas Performance Standards projects classes were very helpful to me.  We are using the TPSP in our pull out GT, and it is helpful to get ideas and resources that help with implementing these projects in our classes.  I also gained some good information in the Webquest class, although I felt we already do much of this.  The class did provide me with a couple more resources.  The lego robotics class was my favorite.  I just got a grant for Lego robotics at my campus, and was excited to get many ideas for use at all grade levels.  Although we think of  lego robotics as math/science, she gave us some great ideas on how to use these in ELAR!  I am so grateful that I was able to go to the conference.  I came back with many ideas to not only use in my own classroom, but also to share with other teachers on my campus.
