Open-Source Instructional Materials

TEA has contracted with two instructional materials developers to create instructional materials in nine high school courses. These state-developed, open-source materials will be provided free of charge to Texas school districts through the Texas Gateway and will be available for the 2017–18 school year and beyond. All products are certified to meet 100% of the required standards (Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills or College Board Learning Standards).

    Products created by Rice University's OpenStax are organized into units and chapters and can be used like a traditional textbook as the entire syllabus for each course. Individual lessons and units can also be accessed for supplemental use.

      All videos will have closed captioning soon.

      Products created by Study Edge may also be used to teach an entire course, but the content is delivered in short videos with master teachers presenting the material. Teachers may also want to use this content to supplement traditional textbooks to help students be more successful in these challenging courses.
