This year, Humanities Texas is celebrating twenty years of conducting statewide teacher professional development programs. Over the last two decades, we have provided educators across Texas with opportunities to study with leading humanities scholars and gain effective classroom strategies and resources. Free to teachers and their schools, our workshops and institutes explore topics at the heart of the state's humanities curricula in U.S. history and government, Texas history, language arts, and media literacy. To date, Humanities Texas has served 7,178 teachers, 2,376 schools, and over 375,000 students with our professional development programs.
Over the coming months, we will share reflections from teachers and faculty who have participated in these programs since 2004 in honor of this milestone anniversary.
