The Texas Faculty Collaboratives (Website)

Rating: 2.7/5 (19 votes cast)

The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB) has established the college and career readiness standards Faculty Collaborative Initiative to provide faculty at institutions of higher education who prepare pre-service teachers with the latest information and resources regarding the implementation of the standards.

The activities of the Faculty Collaborative are designed to ensure that prospective teachers receive preparation that is closely aligned with the College and Career Readiness Standards. This will in turn allow new teachers to better prepare their students to be college-ready.

The College and Career Readiness Standards (CCRS) were jointly developed and adopted by the THECB and the Texas Education Agency (TEA). There are standards in four content areas—mathematics, science, English language arts and social studies—as well as a set of cross disciplinary standards. K-12 schools in Texas are incorporating these standards into their curricula and instruction, and the Faculty Collaborative is helping institutions of higher education incorporate these standards into their teacher preparation programs.
