Teacher Institutes

For nearly two decades, Humanities Texas has partnered with the state’s leading universities and cultural organizations to hold institutes and workshops supporting teachers’ intellectual and professional development. These programs enhance student learning by providing teachers the opportunity to work closely with humanities scholars and explore topics at the heart of the state’s social studies and language arts curricula.


Upcoming Institutes

Due to public health concerns related to the spread of COVID-19, Humanities Texas's summer institutes for classroom teachers, currently scheduled to take place in June, may be postponed, held remotely, or canceled. We will provide updates as soon as possible.

In the meantime, Humanities Texas will begin holding webinars for social studies and language arts teachers. View a list of upcoming webinars here and learn how to register.
