Authorized Providers will have more resources and recommendations for supporting the strong local implementation planning with districts. For examples of how to best support teachers who will participate in reading academies during Year 3, view the webinar recording below.
3. Do K-3 teachers who only offer instruction in math and/or science need to complete the Texas Reading Academies? Yes. K-3 math and science teachers who are teachers of record must complete Reading Academies because literacy plays an important role in math and science instruction, and all K-3 teachers will benefit from the information learned in the Texas Reading Academies. For example, word problems are very common in math. If a child is unable to decode or comprehend the word problem, they will not be able to solve it. In science, children rely heavily on building their vocabulary and comprehension skills to be able to understand the content. In addition to that, many K-3 math or science teachers also provide tutoring and intervention support. Those teachers must understand the science of teaching reading to effectively support learner needs, especially those with reading difficulties. To make the Texas Reading Academies more relevant for these teachers, we have included cross-curricular connections throughout the modules and explicitly discuss how literacy is embedded in math, science, and social studies. An application is available for districts that wish to request a waiver for reading academies for mathematics teachers. Districts will need to provide basic information in the application, a screenshot showing the teacher's STR certification, and an assurance that the teacher will only teach mathematics in the 2022-23 school year.
5. How long will it take for a teacher/administrator to complete Reading Academies? It is designed to be completed in no more than 10 full days over a 12-month period. Districts can personalize time frames for teachers, as long as the teachers are able to complete the full training within 12 months of beginning online content. The teacher pathway contains approximately 60 hours of content; the administrator pathway contains 42 hours of content.
7. Will TEA provide a screening assessment for districts to determine which participants should be enrolled in a comprehensive versus blended model? There will be no screening assessment provided before teachers begin Reading Academies content. For more information on Reading Academies assessments, please see the Assessment and Exemption section of this FAQ.
2. What is the difference between a blended facilitator and a comprehensive coach? A Blended Facilitator is the leader of a Blended Model Cohort. They may manage a cohort of up to 100 participants with an estimated time of 12 hours per week. A full-time blended facilitator could facilitate a maximum of three cohorts. A Comprehensive Coach is the leader of a Comprehensive Model Cohort. It is a full-time role, that allows them to facilitate sessions and provide coaching for no more than one cohort with a maximum of 60 teachers.
6. If we are considering using current district-level staff as cohort leaders, can they do this and keep other district duties? A current staff member can serve as a part-time blended facilitator while still holding other duties within the district, however, they must dedicate a minimum of 25 hours per week to the Blended Cohorts they lead. Because Comprehensive Coaches require a full-time commitment, this role cannot be split with other district duties.
