The LBJ Library offers a research-based workshop for teachers of all disciplines and grade levels. Participants learn how to conduct research in historical records, create classroom materials, and present documents in ways that sharpen students’ skills and enthusiasm for history and the humanities.
Each participant will select a topic, conduct research, and develop a teaching activity, lesson, or unit for classroom use. Each teacher will receive copies of primary documents selected to enhance the classroom activity.
Primarily Teaching can also be scheduled by a school or school district for a week outside of the already scheduled workshop. Schools and school districts can provide this rich research opportunity to teachers to create lessons, activities, or units using the library's extensive document and audio/visual archives.
Due to limited space in the Reading Room, the number of participants is limited to 10 persons. Participants will be registered in the order the registration forms are received. Email confirmation will be sent when the online application is received.
Texas teachers may elect to receive up to 40 continuing education credit hours or six hours of Gifted & Talented update credit. Graduate credit from a major university is available for an additional fee.
