Texas Lesson Study (TxLS) is a TEA initiative that utilizes inquiry-based, job-embedded professional development where teachers work collaboratively to develop, teach, and assess research-based lessons.
As part of this initiative, teachers analyze data, research effective strategies, create lessons, and reflect on effectiveness. A collaborative discussion and development model is used to enhance lesson effectiveness and teacher craft. These mini-cycles continue throughout the year. TxLS can support any campus or state-level initiative by providing instructional coaching and on-going support for implementation fidelity.
