What does it look like?

what-does-it-look-likeRAISEup 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.

RAISEup Texas:

  • Builds deep conceptual learning skills.
  • Uses powerful instructional tools in every class, for every student.
  • Supports in-depth teacher planning to increase rigor.
  • Focuses on struggling learners to close achievement gaps.
