This summer, Humanities Texas held free online professional development institutes for Texas teachers covering topics in U.S. history, Texas history, and English language arts. For history teachers, we offered institutes on American society during the Early Republic and the Texas Revolution. For English language arts teachers, we hosted an institute on teaching writing at the secondary level.

If you weren't able to participate in these institutes or you want a refresher on the programs you did attend, you can now view more than fifteen of this summer's faculty lectures on the Humanities Texas website. These videos feature content-based instruction from leading scholars in their fields and include the valuable question-and-answer sessions that followed each presentation.

Additional recordings of faculty lectures from previous years are also available in our Digital Repository, a searchable and ever-expanding online repository including materials from all Humanities Texas programs. Contents include historical documents, works of art, video recordings, audio recordings of our Texas Originals radio program, and countless other resources.

We regularly add new videos and educational resources to the website, so please check back for updates!
