Transforming middle school teaching and learning.
What does it look like?
RAISEup Texas framework includes a “toolkit” of teaching and learning tools that break down every lesson to actively engage every student in a roadmap for conceptual learning. The basis for RAISEup Texas is the research-validated and evidence-based Strategic Instruction Model (SIM) created by the University of Kansas Center for Research on Learning. Through intense, multi-year professional development and coaching for teachers, SIM provides a structured methodology for learning, allowing students to focus-in on content and problem-solving skills.
- Builds deep conceptual learning skills.
