Slavery, Secession, the Civil War, and Reconstruction Teacher Workshop

Staff DevelopmentOn February 15 and 16, 2017, Humanities Texas will hold one-day teacher workshops in Dallas and Houston focusing on slavery, secession, the Civil War, and Reconstruction. Workshop faculty includes Michael Les Benedict (The Ohio State University), Daniel Feller (University of Tennessee), and Jennifer L. Weber (University of Kansas). 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.
