Education Service Center Regions 6, 13, and 14 in collaboration with ESC Regions 5, 15, and 16 are piloting the Lesson Study Professional Development Program for the 2016–2017 academic year as part of the TEA Strategic Plan 2017–2021, set forth by Commissioner Mike Morath. Texas Lesson Study (TXLS) is inquiry-based, job-embedded professional development where teachers work collaboratively to develop, teach, and assess research-based lessons. The teacher-designed lessons are video recorded and will be available on the Texas Gateway.
A report on program effectiveness for the fall 2016 semester will be available in winter 2017. For more information about the pilot and TXLS, visit the Texas Gateway.
