Comments Two of the largest school districts in Texas, Austin and Dallas Independent School Districts, have stated that they will not comply with Republican general investigating committee chair Matt Krause's request. As previously stated, he made a list of books, wi th a focus on sexual orientation, feminism, race, and polar bears , as well as books that contain "contain material that might make students feel discomfort, guilt, anguish, or any other form of psychological distress because of their race or sex or convey that a student, by virtue of their race or sex, is inherently racist, sexist, or oppressive, whether consciously or unconsciously.
But for some reason, not the original novel. The request stated that the impetus for the inquiry was a series of controversies at Texas independent school districts — Carroll, Spring Branch, Lake Travis, Leander and Katy — involving books that parents wanted pulled from shelves. In a later radio interview, Matt Krause said in a radio interview that the purpose of the inquiry is to determine whether recent laws governing what can be taught in schools about race and sexuality are being followed.
Basically google it. Others, however, are doing thr best to comply with the request. We are working to do our due diligence in researching and responding to Rep. Krause's inquiry. Here is the full list, which may also double as a recommended reading list if you are so minded.

Engaging Teaching Resources
Stacey Lloyd I help English teachers deliver engaging lessons with thoughtfully designed materials. Pleased to meet you Learning should be engaging, interactive, and relevant. That is the core educational philosophy which underpins my teaching practice, and is at the heart of every resource I create.
Learn More Rigorous I believe that every educational experience should provide the learner with a challenge. A challenge which - with the right scaffolding - motivates them to learn, grow, and develop their abilities.
Through meaningful discussions, personal inquiry projects, and creative activities, I strive to make learning interactive and collaborative. As such, I strive to promote critical thinking skills, effective communication, and tools for media literacy.
It is incredibly thorough and the kids enjoyed it so much. It took us a bit longer to get through each lesson with my 50 minute class periods and all ESL kiddos, but it was worth the extra time! Everything I've ever purchased from Stacey Lloyd is incredible, but this takes the cake in my opinion!
Dana V. It is very user friendly and my students so far have responded well to the stories I have covered with them. It is due to the breaking down of concepts and it does not overwhelm them. Thank you!! Irene E. Short Story Unit Bundle These posters have been so useful in my class. They hang prominently at the front of the room and the students refer to them almost daily. Love the car and engaging design. Stacey Lloyd can always be relied upon to produce wonderful resources.
Nicole M. Figurative Language Posters I can never say enough about your bundles and resources. I know that always sounds redundant when I leave feedback! Marisean G.

They hang prominently at the front of the room and the students refer to them almost daily. Love the car and engaging design. If you look closely, here you can see that I have significantly downsized by binder usage. Honestly this came from being in the same teaching position three years in a row.
I knew where my digital files were and could access them easily. I am just better about saving digital files in an organized manner so that I can access them easily. Ignore the Thursday label ha!
When I was self-contained, I just had one notebook for each subject. When I first started teaching two rounds of sixth grade ELA I did kind of the same, where I just used the same notebook for both classes. I quickly realized I needed a notebook for every class and subject I use one for. Even more so, I had to have them labeled on the spine so I could easily grab them and organize them for each class. Each of my classes has two notebooks: One notebook has all their bell ringers and interactive notebook notes and the other notebook has all their reading responses and writing.
The number labels are the class periods. We created our notebook tabs and organization at the beginning of the year. It took us about two days to make them because we numbered every single page.
I will break these down for you on the next few pages. These editable notebook tabs are available as an exclusive freebie for subscribers for you to utilize for student notebooks. These are an exclusive freebie for subscribers and are only otherwise available for purchase. Click here to get these sent straight to your inbox. They seemed to overcrowd my desks almost every single day.
This gave me a space to put all the papers that needed to be graded for each class period. Anytime I have extra copies of a lesson plan we do I put it in the bottom drawer. If students need a copy they can dig in there. Honestly I eventually recycle most of my extra copies.
I saw this idea for bulletin boards on Instagram. I have a modular so basically all my walls are bulletin board material.
Any time I create a chart paper, I just hang it up under its corresponding label. Basically google it.
