On April 19, 2018, Humanities Texas will hold a workshop at the Kimbell Art Museum in Fort Worth for Texas history teachers covering the state’s history in the twentieth century.

"Topics in Twentieth-Century Texas History" will address Texas politics from 1930 to 1960, boom and bust in Texas industry, significant women in twentieth-century Texas, and the civil rights movement. Workshop faculty includes Alwyn Barr (Texas Tech University), Michael L. Gillette (Humanities Texas),  Joseph A. Pratt (University of Houston), and Rebecca Sharpless (Texas Christian University).

Teachers will receive books and other instructional materials and be trained in the examination and interpretation of primary sources. Content will be aligned with the TEKS. For details on eligibility, substitute and travel reimbursements, and the workshop venue or to apply online, visit the Upcoming Institutes page.

The workshop is made possible with major funding from the State of Texas, with ongoing support from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
