Center Releases Three New Resources for Future Teachers

El Paso, Texas – The Center for History Teaching & Learning is pleased to announce three new resources designed to help prospective history and social studies teachers.

1.       “Facts from the Field” succinctly summarizes the job prospects in secondary education and clearly outlines clearly the best way to succeed in UTEP’s teacher education program.

2.       A new advising website puts prospective teachers in touch with all of the relevant information, helpful advisors, and key resources necessary to complete coursework and certification exams.

3.       Finally, a new listserv allows anyone to sign up for updates on program requirements, information, and assistance.

Alumni of the program who received a sneak preview of the resources attest to their usefulness. “The links that are included are awesome and full of information,” said Israel Delgado. Gerardo Luna added, “I wish they had something like this when I first started at UTEP because the whole process was very confusing.”

The Center for History Teaching & Learning is a division of UTEP’s History Department created to promote scholarly teaching among department faculty, support teacher education among our students, and provide outreach and professional development opportunities for area social studies teachers.

For more information, please visit utep.edu/chtl, send an email to chtl@utep.edu, or call 915-747-5878.
