RBIS-Research Based Instructional Strategies

RBIS are research based best instructional strategies that should be present in classrooms. The Texas Education Agency has identified several that have the highest impact. Hamilton ISD has been partnering with Ed. Direction, and we will focus on the following this school year:


  1. Knowledge Coherence (We will center ELAR lessons on the central meaning of the text rather than discrete skills or strategies. Teachers should bundle texts by topic whenever possible.)

  2. Evidence Based Responses (Questions in ELAR classes are primarily text dependent. Students should include text evidence in their verbal and written responses.)


  1. Productive Struggle (Students will engage in productive problem solving, engaging in multiple opportunities for practice, discussion , representations, and writing that requires them to explain and revise their thinking.)

  2. Assessment Practices (We will focus on data driven instruction through our high quality instructional materials.)
