    The Power of Literacy

    Literacy is often associated with the ability to read, write, understand, and use information. However, the term has come to take on broader meaning, standing for a range of knowledge, skills and abilities relating to reading, mathematics, science and more. It is about making sense and engaging.

    Teachers as Agents of Power:

    • promote critical thinking, creativity, communication, and collaboration in all content areas along with technology skills and global competencies. 
    • promote the enjoyment of reading texts for the pleasure they bring, the ideas they convey, the information they impart, the wisdom they offer, and the possibilities they uncover.  
    • promote 21st century skills ensure intellectually challenging tasks and learning activities.
    • promote access to complex text and integration across content areas through reading, writing and discourse.
    • promote motivation and engagement by incorporating motivational factors, such as interest, relevance, identity, and self-efficacy.
    • promote cross-linguistic transfer of skills that result in proficient English Language Development and Biliteracy.
    • promote respect and the value of cultural and linguistic diversity, fostering pride and a positive self-image for all students in order to create optimal learning environment. 

    Today we come together as a community of educators to revitalize and re-affirm our commitment to being agents of the power of literacy!

  • PD Series 1: Designing Submersibles

    Sep 8th, 2018
    9:00am - 4:00pm
    Texas State Aquarium, 2710 North Shoreline Blvd., Corpus Christi, TX 78402

    Taking the Plunge: Designing Submersibles 

    Introduce students to sonar, density, and floating to retrieve packages from a model ocean floor. 

    To study the ocean, scientists and engineers use submersibles -- small, remote-controlled underwater vessels. This unit introduces students to the field of ocean engineering through the storybook, Despina Makes a Splash, about a girl in Greece who designs a submersible to retrieve lost diving goggles. Students learn about sounding poles and sonar as they map a section of ocean floor. Then, they apply their knowledge of density, floating, and sinking to design their own submersible, equip it with research instruments, and retrieve packages from a model ocean floor.
