ESC-20 eStore Resources
The booklets shown below contain the vertical-alignment version of the 2008 revised Spanish Language Arts and Reading Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (SLAR TEKS). The documents contain the same information as the rule text, which is available on the Texas Education Agency Web site; however, they have been reformatted to display, at a glance, the corresponding student expectations for each grade level and highlight those student expectations that are designated as Readiness and Supporting Standards by the Texas Education Agency. They also include the ESC-20 SLAR STAAR Quick Reference Sheets for the assessed grade levels and high school courses.
