TEKStar software for creating lesson plans. It was
developed by John F. Christensen
(cdesign)and is distributed through the
regional Education Service Centers. Several regions
have financially funded the endeavor. The software
contains lesson plans for all grade levels written by
"core" teachers around the state. A teacher can also
add personal lesson plans. Once entered in the
software most teachers just go back the next year and
change dates to have have up-to-date lesson plans.
There are calendars and you can make information
public or private. Ours are public so the principal
can access our lesson plans. The software tracks the
use of TEKS, TAAS objectives and Student Expectations.
It also allows for showing cross-curricular
teachings. In essence once your lessons are entered
your life is much easier, SUPPOSEDLY. Our service
center did not offer this so we are using the system
through an adjacent center. There have been very few
problems once the teachers have gotten used to the
software, my job was to teach the software and check
to make sure each teacher understood what to do.
