On December 7, 2017, Humanities Texas will hold a one-day teacher workshop in Austin on teaching critical reading and writing skills, focusing on the works of Edgar Allan Poe. The workshop faculty includes Coleman Hutchison (The University of Texas at Austin), J. Gerald Kennedy (Lousiana State University), and Julie Sievers (Southwestern University). Danielle B. Sigler from UT's Harry Ransom Center will introduce participants to their Poe-related holdings and teaching resources.

We are also accepting applications for our upcoming "Teaching Texas Literature" workshops, to be held on November 30 in Dallas and December 1 in San Antonio.

Teachers at all workshops will receive books and other instructional materials. Content at all of our workshops will be aligned with the TEKS. For details on eligibility, substitute and travel reimbursements, and venues or to apply online, visit the Upcoming Institutes page on the Humanities Texas website.
