Westward Expansion Teacher Workshop

Staff DevelopmentOn February 1 and 2, 2017, Humanities Texas will hold two one-day teacher workshops in San Antonio and Austin focusing on the westward expansion of the United States in the nineteenth century. Topics to be addressed include innovations in transportation and communication, Manifest Destiny, the Mexican War, and Native American resistance. Teachers at all workshops will receive books and other instructional materials and be trained in the examination and interpretation of primary sources. Content at all of our spring workshops will be aligned with the TEKS. The workshops are open to all secondary-level social studies teachers. Priority consideration will be given to early-career teachers in low-performing schools and districts. Participants will receive CPE hours and may be eligible to receive GT credit, depending on district standards. CPE hours will be adjusted if a teacher misses any portion of the program. The workshop is free to teachers and their schools. Teachers will be reimbursed for approved travel costs up to $300. Participants are responsible for making their own travel arrangements to and from the program.
