English Language Arts & Reading (ELAR)
Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS)

Dear Texas Educator,

Since 1982, ECS Learning Systems has created quality K–12 teaching materials, training, and media. As a Texas-based publisher of the highest quality test-prep materials, we have always shared your commitment to lead your students to success on Texas tests—STAAR®, TAKS, TAAS, and TEAMS.

With the adoption and implementation of the revised English Language Arts and Reading (ELAR) Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) for the 2019-2020 academic year, ECS Learning Systems is proud to release our new and revised STAAR MASTER® Student Practice Books for Reading and Writing, STAAR MASTER® Companion Work Texts for Reading, and STAAR MASTER® Practice Tests for Reading and Writing.

Please note, as new information is released by the Texas Education Agency (TEA), these products may be further updated to include any relevant changes to help ensure student success on the STAAR®.

As needed, we will provide updated Teacher Guides and additional content and information to assist you in the transition to the revised TEKS. Please refer to the charts below.

At ECS, we strive to provide educators like you with easy-to-use and effective materials that make teaching easier. We count it as a privilege to have you as a customer, and we hope that our products continuously exceed your expectations.

Please let us know how well the STAAR MASTER® products worked in your classroom. Also, please spread the word—many of our new customers are referred by teachers like you.

Sincerely,

Your ECS Team
