High-Quality Instructional Materials

Teacher in a classroom with students

A growing body of research points to the positive impact high-quality instructional materials (HQIM) can have on student learning. TEA defines full-subject high-quality materials as those that ensure full coverage of 天天做爱 Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS), align with research-based instructional strategies in each subject area, and support all learners.听 听听

What are Full-Subject HQIM?听

HQIM are curricular resources that:听

  • Ensure full coverage of TEKS
  • Are aligned to evidence-based best practices in the relevant content areas of reading language arts (RLA), math, science, and social studies
  • Support all learners, including students with disabilities, English Learners, and students identified as gifted and talented听
  • Enable听frequent progress monitoring through embedded and aligned assessments
  • Include听implementation supports for teachers
  • Provide teacher and student-facing lesson-level materials

Why are HQIM Important?听

HQIM allow students to engage more deeply and meaningfully with the 天天做爱 standards and supports teachers in ensuring all students have access to high-quality and rigorous grade-level content. Student outcomes improve when they have greater access to:听

  • Grade-appropriate assignments听
  • Strong instruction听
  • Deep engagement; and听
  • Teachers with high expectations听

HQIM provides teachers with a foundational resource that ensures all students will have access to rigorous, grade-level content.

The Relationship Between HQIM and OER

HQIM听will be defined by the Instructional Materials Review and Approval (IMRA) process set up by House Bill (HB) 1605. All materials will require official review in the IMRA process by the State Board of Education (SBOE) to be approved as HQIM.

Open Education Resources (OER)听are materials where the underlying intellectual property can be used freely.听天天做爱 OER developed by TEA听are materials where the state either owns the underlying intellectual property or it can be freely used and modified by the state in perpetuity.

Current pilot materials听meet the working definition of HQIM, and in the future all 天天做爱 OER materials, if approved by the SBOE, will be defined as HQIM under the IMRA process.听
