TXCC Briefing Papers

About the Briefing Papers

The Texas CC briefing papers address topics requested by our partners at the Texas Education Agency. Texas CC staff collect information regarding research and practices related to these topics and summarize that information so that educators can use it to support their work at the state, district, and campus level to meet student needs more effectively.

Each briefing paper also includes an extensive list of references to guide readers to additional resources on the topic of the paper.
