Focus on Engaging Instruction

As we move into the 2012-2013 school year we know that our focus needs to be on high quality, engaging instruction that assists students in achieving the level of understanding set by the TEKS for each grade level. This document focuses on instruction with an emphasis on curriculum, assessment, rigor and relevance, collaborative teams, and professional development.

 
It is our hope that districts and campuses use this STAAR Navigation Guide as a starting point to assess their current systems and have meaningful conversations around the current status of instruction. From these conversations will come action plans that facilitate rigorous and relevant classroom instruction. Additional information may be found in the resources section.

To download your copy of any of the STAAR Navigation Guides visit our STAAR Resources page at http://www4.esc13.net/staar/resources.
