Request a Virtual Teacher Education Workshop!
Thanks to a generous grant from the Amon G. Carter Foundation, the Center for Texas Studies at TCU conducts Teacher Education Workshops for local school districts. Sessions provide fresh insights that deepen educators’ knowledge, understanding, and appreciation of U.S. and Texas history as well as other topics upon request. Teachers looking for creative ways to engage students will find our workshops full of abundant resources to implement in the classroom.
The Center draws upon social sciences faculty from TCU and other local universities as workshop instructors. Professors offer pedagogical and methodological guidance to help teachers communicate important political, social, and economic themes from American and Texas history and politics to their students. Because classroom teachers create the foundation for students understanding of past and interpretation of the present, the Center understands that teachers need an ever-expanding tool box in order to best serve young scholars. The Center organizes workshops for many schools throughout the state on your local campus, at TCU, or at another location. Contact us for more information at Center for Texas Studies.
