Hateful acts at school area dangerous, disturbing and disruptive. But keep this in mind: A bias incident does not define a school. It is, in many ways, a test of the school’s culture and climate. How you respond is the true measure of a school’s character. It’s up to school leaders to set expectations. Everyone on staff, from the bus driver and custodian to classroom teachers and the IT department, must know that hate, disrespect, and intimidation has no place on campus and that every student should feel welcome.

D-Tubes and vPLCs Overview 

The D-Tube videos are 3-5 minute videos intended to provide teachers with a platform for self-facilitated learning on how to teach difficult TEKS/SEs based concepts. The D-Tube videos are based on a standard (TEKS), or a bundling of standards that address a specific topic, and consist of at least two sections that can be indexed and easily searched by the teacher.
*Please Note: Since Clever class roster data for allocation of products, some products may not appear until scheduling has been completed. Resources should align to classes that are visible in GradeSpeed if there are online resources available for that class. In addition please see the 5 min video for HMH product allocation below the Clever presentation. In some cases, you may want additional products in your class or my.hrw (blended classrooms) or the class name may have been too far off the HMH product title. In this case, the product may not appear for you on the initial login and you may need to allocate products for your class.
