Fall 2015 Semester of the TSLP Online Course: Information and Schedule

Once again this school year, Texas Literacy Initiative (TLI) grantee districts will participate in the Texas State Literacy Plan (TSLP) online course.  During the fall semester, course members will review the TSLP online material in a platform other than Project Share. TLI District Project Managers will be responsible for forwarding future Announcements to all Grant Implementation Team and site/campus-based leadership team members in their respective districts to inform course members that new lesson material is posted. Additional information regarding changes to the upcoming course platform will be provided by your TLI District Project Manager. Please note that due to the change in Action Steps, lessons are being rewritten for several LASERS components so not all course content will be accessible during the revision process.

The TSLP Implementation module course participants will take this fall semester builds on the learning and reflection you did in the Assessment module and focuses on selecting Action Steps to work on that relate to your current site/campus needs or priorities. This module is an update of the spring 2014 Process module which focused on Effective Instructional Framework. This module will officially begin on Monday, September 21, 2015.  View the schedule for the semester below.

Prior to the start of the course, site/campus-based leadership teams should update their self-assessments of all LASERS components and Action Steps in their Implementation Maps in order to align with the revised TSLP 3.0 (Draft). Around September 1, TLI District Project Managers will provide each site/campus-based leadership team with automatically generated login information. After receiving this login information, sites/campuses may access their TSLP Resource accounts to complete their updates.
