The TEKS Resource System is an online curriculum management system dedicated to supporting school districts with their implementation of the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS). This collection of resources provides multiple tools for use during lesson planning, activity development, data analysis, and assessment creation. Region 6 ESC offers two purchasing options for TEKS Resource System subscribers. 

TEKS Resource System by the Numbers

RESOURCES AND ACTIVITIES COLLECTION

These aligned digital resources are an effort of Education Service Centers, which began as a response to the COVID-19 crisis. These resources are intended to support the TEKS Resource System curricular content, and can be used in both synchronous and asynchronous environments. This effort provides teachers with an organized system of resources that target standards.

TRS RESOURCES AND ACTIVITIES COLLECTION

COMPONENTS

TEKS Resource System provides a multitude of documents that enhance a teacher’s ability to plan for quality instruction. The components include:

  • Vertical Alignment Document (VAD): Document that aligns Student Expectations across grade levels and provides specificity so teachers understand the changes in content and/or rigor across grade levels.
  • TEKS Clarification Document/Enhanced TEKS Clarification Document (Math Only): Detailed specificity of course or grade-level specific Student Expectations.
  • Year at a Glance (YAG): Document designed to provide a snapshot of the entire year's instructional plan. The Year at a Glance is a map and pacing guide for units of study.
  • TEKS Verification Document (TVD): A companion document to the Year At A Glance which lists the Student Expectations for a grade level/content area and indicates when an SE is a Direct Teach (T) or is Ongoing (O).
  • Instructional Focus Document (IFD): Unit planning guides that provide an overview of the unit, overarching ideas,unit concepts & understandings, student misconceptions/underdeveloped concepts, key vocabulary, unit-level specificity of the TEKS, ELPS, and Performance Assessments.
  • Performance Assessments: Assessment tasks that align with the learning objectives of the unit. These Assessments bundle multiple student expectations into one project-style assessment activity, are found in the IFD, and include rubrics.
  • Unit Assessment Items: Assessment item bank that is tightly aligned to the units. The item bank has been designed so that districts have the opportunity to build an assessment that is best suited for their students. Assessment items are designed to resemble STAAR.
  • STAAR Analysis: Analyzes previous STAAR Assessment items based on depth of knowledge. The documents also provide plausible rationale for student errors.
  • Other Resources: A variety of content specific resources for each subject area that provide support to teachers.
