Liz Philippi, School Program Coordinator at the Texas State Library and Archives Commission, has created the following spreadsheets as a starting point for educators to view how the TexQuest resources directly connect to curriculum. Feel free to view the documents at your leisure. 

Username/Password Do’s

  • Do post the UN/PW on a page that is in a Learning Management System or on a page that uses Single Sign On to authenticate users
  • Do post the UN/PW in Google Classroom
  • Do email, text, and print the UN/PW to students and parents
  • Do send the UN/PW home on paper products like bookmarks, or teaching packets

Username/Password Dont's

  • DO NOT post UN/PW on a public accessible web page that is available to anyone

Username/Password Sharing Ideas

  • Send UN/PW in emails (If you decide to email the password to students school emails addresses, you are welcome to download a Seasonal flyer, save to your computer, and add the link (for example, if you are using the Navigator, type the link, https://www.galepages.com/texquest2/resources, select district name, and type district password). 
  • Print all district passwords and send them home with packets to parents.
  • Create a password protected Google document with all school passwords that are linked to your webpage so participants only need to know one password.
  • Find out how your district is sending out other resource login information and request that TexQuest be included in those communications.
  • Share UN/PW through the "Remind" app
  • School bus hotspots
  • Place QR codes to TexQuest resources links, for articles or eBooks, on school bus windows with UN/PW
  • Add strips of paper with TexQuest UN/PW and the link to Navigator, LMS, SSO system, or Google doc, to student lunches being distributed
  • Download, save, and modify the TexQuest Resource Guide, by adding icons, links, and UN/PW information for all available resources and share with faculty
