Summer Institute Registration Info

CHTL/Humanities Texas 2011 Summer Teacher Institute
Register at

This summer the Center for History Teaching & Learning will again partner with Humanities Texas to hold a three-day summer institute on June 14-17 on the UTEP campus. The institute will explore U.S. history from Reconstruction to the present day. (Teachers interested in U.S. history from origins to Reconstruction may apply to attend institutes in Houston or Fort Worth and will be eligible for a travel stipend.)

The institute offers participants the opportunity to work with leading scholars of U.S. history and culture and share strategies for teaching with primary sources.

The forty teachers selected to participate in each institute will receive a $200 stipend, continuing professional development credit, a travel allowance of up to $300, housing (if necessary), and teaching documents for the classroom. GT credit may be available depending on district standards.

Institutes are open to all middle and high school humanities teachers. Preference will be given to teachers in their first few years of teaching.

How to apply
Applications are accepted on a rolling basis. Space is limited and teachers are encouraged to submit registration forms as soon as possible. We do expect institutes to fill very quickly. Application and additional information is online at

Please direct any questions about the program to Rachel Spradley, program officer, at 512.440.1991 or
