Call for Review Panels for K-12 Social Studies and more…..

Text Books

Please listen to the Women On The Wall Radio show posted below with Texas Mom Kara Sands as she shares  just how important the Text book Review Panels are in Texas. The far left is working to fundamentally transformation education in America and it is our time to give the gift of American Exceptionalism to our children, the next generation. 

The shift is from American Exceptionalism to Globalization. 

There is a Call out now for State Review Panel Nominees 

The Texas Education Agency is now accepting nominations to the state review panels that will evaluate instructional materials submitted for adoption under Proclamation 2015.

To nominate yourself or someone else to serve on a state review panel, please complete the form posted at http://www.tea.state.tx.us/WorkArea/linkit.aspx?LinkIdentifier=id&ItemID=25769808256&libID=25769808258 and submit it to the TEA on or before Friday, January 24, 2014.

Proclamation 2015 calls for instructional materials in the following areas:

·   Social Studies, grades K-12

·   Social Studies (Spanish), grades K-5

·   Mathematics, grades 9-12

·   Fine Arts, grades K-12

State review panels are scheduled to convene in Austin for one week during the summer of 2014 to review materials submitted under Proclamation 2015. The TEA will reserve hotel lodging and reimburse panel members for all travel expenses, as allowable by law.

 

· Panel members should plan to remain on-site for five days to conduct the evaluation. 

 

· Panel members will be asked to complete an initial review of instructional materials prior to the in-person review. 

 

· Panel members will receive orientation and training both prior to the initial review and at the beginning of the in-person review. 

 

· Panel members might be asked to review additional content following the in-person review.

 

· Because many of the samples will be delivered electronically, panel members should be comfortable reviewing materials on-screen rather than in print.

 

· Panel members should also have a working knowledge of Microsoft Excel.  

 

Upon initial contact by a representative of the TEA, state review panel nominees begin a “no-contact” period in which they may not have either direct or indirect contact with any publisher or other person having an interest in the content of instructional materials under evaluation by the panel. The “no contact” period begins with the initial communication from the Texas Education Agency and ends after the State Board of Education (SBOE) adopts the instructional materials. The SBOE is scheduled to adopt Proclamation 2015 materials at its November 2014 meeting.

 

Nominations are due on or before Friday, January 24, 2014.  The nomination form is posted on the TEA website at http://www.tea.state.tx.us/WorkArea/linkit.aspx?LinkIdentifier=id&ItemID=25769808256&libID=25769808258.
