ATPE Texas Lesson Study Article - Fall 2019

Texas Lesson Study (TXLS) is inquiry-based, job-embedded professional development where teachers work collaboratively to develop, teach, and assess research-based lessons. Training and meeting schedules for TXLS are tailored to fit each campus' needs. Teacher-designed lessons created as part of TXLS are video recorded and available on the Texas Gateway. TXLS is part of the TEA strategic plan 2017-2021, set forth by Commissioner Mike Morath.
