4th Annual Summer History Seminar  on History & Biography

June 16-19, 2009

Liberal Arts Building, room 318, UTEP

The Texas state history standards and standard-based assessments are thoroughly grounded in the use of biography. This seminar serves to provide teachers with an opportunity to learn about individuals named in the state materials, to share innovative ways of teaching students about those persons, and to reflect on the nature of teaching history with biography.

 

Participants in the seminar will:

  • Learn from award winning teachers and scholars
  • Engage in hands-on workshops
  • Leave with lesson ideas and resource materials
  • Receive professional development credit*

Sessions will treat Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson and Alexander Hamilton, Abraham Lincoln, Booker T. Washington, Henry Ford, Rosa Parks, El Paso Women, and John Wayne.

The Summer History Seminar is open to all grade K-12 educators, including teachers, librarians and media specialists, and technology coordinators in public, public charter, private, or religiously affiliated schools, as well as home schooling parents. Content is geared to professionals working with students from upper elementary to high school. There is no charge for the seminar or materials.
