The Texas Education Agency (TEA) is seeking volunteers to serve on career and technical education (CTE) textbook review panels for the following courses:
Advanced Animal Science
Advertising and Sales Promotion
Agribusiness Management and Marketing
Anatomy and Physiology
Business Information Management I
Business Information Management II
Career Prep I
Principles of Business, Marking and Finance
Principles of Information Technology
Small Animal Management
Wildlife, Fisheries, and Ecology Management
A panel of three people will review each course. Each panel of three will review one set of materials. TEA will ship the materials to the panel members. Those reviewing online materials will be provided with appropriate login information.
TEA will hold an orientation meeting via webinar.
Using publisher-provided correlations as a guide, panelists will work as a virtual team (communicating via phone and email) to come to a consensus to determine the extent to which the materials they are reviewing cover the required Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS).
Panels will document their findings on a TEA-provided evaluation document. TEA textbook staff will be in regular contact with panel members during their review to measure progress, answer questions, and facilitate the review.
This is a volunteer opportunity, there is no stipend.
A nomination form is attached. Please complete this form if you are interested in serving on a panel. Please return the completed nomination form to email@example.com by Friday, October 15, 2010.
