Who will be assisting in implementing this professional development program?
The ESC TXLS facilitator is a “knowledgeable other” in the Lesson Study process,
- serving as a resource for content-specific pedagogy,
- helping teachers find research-based instructional materials, and
- supporting teachers in implementing campus or district instructional priorities, such as a campus writing initiative.
The ESC provides two options for districts/campuses when implementing Texas Lesson Study.
Option 1: An ESC Facilitator co-facilitates and prepares a Lead Teacher(s) or Instructional Coach to lead subsequent groups independently.
Option 2: An ESC Facilitator trains a District/Campus Facilitator (e.g., instructional coach, principal) to lead the Texas Lesson Study program.
Lesson Study can also be implemented
