Teaching & Learning Department

The Aldine Teaching & Learning Department provides an aligned framework for all classroom instruction called the Model of Instruction. The curriculum program directors work to insure a complete alignment between the written curriculum, based on the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS), the taught curriculum, based on the district scope and sequence and planning calendars, and instructional resources, and the tested curriculum, from campus assessments to district benchmark assessments to the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR), and End of Course (EOC) for students in grades 9-12. In addition, professional development aligned to the curriculum is offered throughout the instructional year and in the summer to allow teachers the opportunity to improve their instructional practices.

Aldine believes that it is important for all administrators, teachers, students, and parents to have an understanding of what each student is expected to learn during their academic career. The Executive Director of Curriculum and Instruction, curricular program directors, and classroom teachers work collaboratively to produce the district scope and sequence for all content areas, district assessments for each six weeks, many instructional resources to use in the classroom, and professional development opportunities.
