Online Educational Resources

Humanities Texas has assembled links to a number of high-quality, online educational resources to supplement the ones that we have developed, such as A President's Vision, Texas Originals, and our Digital Repository. We recommend these websites and online collections for creating lessons and dynamic activities and encouraging a deeper understanding of the humanities.

Social Studies Resources

Assembled here are links to some of the state's and nation's premiere sources for historical documents and lesson materials, including those provided by the National Archives, the Library of Congress, and libraries and repositories throughout Texas.

English Language Arts Resources

This page includes links to ELA resources prepared by the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Library of Congress, and PBS Learning Media. Also available is our "author index"—a unique collection of materials, organized by author, that tracks the history of commonly taught texts and their reception over time.

Online Teacher Professional Development Lectures

Humanities Texas holds free online professional development institutes for Texas teachers covering topics in U.S. history, Texas history, and English language arts. Faculty lectures from these programs are available online, featuring content-based instruction from leading scholars in their fields and the valuable question-and-answer sessions that followed each presentation.
