Humanities Texas 2013 Summer Teacher Institute

Jun 10, 2013

Humanities Texas conducts institutes and workshops that support Texas teacher’s intellectual and professional development. Currently our education program puts together a series of workshop that focuses on topics in history/social studies and English for middle school and high school teachers. We have workshops in the Spring, Summer and Fall, which are all TEKS aligned. All workshops are free of charge and teachers may be eligible to receive CPE credit. Summer institutes for 2013 will be held in Austin, Houston, El Paso, and San Antonio. The topic is America at War. Only Texas teachers may apply.

The institute in Austin (June 10-13) will align with the state’s eighth grade U.S. History curriculum. Topics to be addressed include the American Revolution, the Revolutionary War, the Pueblo Revolt, the War of 1812, the Mexican War, the Indian wars in the southwest, and secession and the Civil War. read more
