Center Begins New “Resource of the Week” Program

November 2, 2011

El Paso, Texas – The Center for History Teaching & Learning is pleased to announce a new program of publishing weekly reviews of online resources for history and social studies teachers. The Center aims to identify and share the best digital resources for use in twenty-first-century classrooms.

Reviews will be published weekly on the Center’s blog and Facebook page. The blog already contains reviews of a nationwide clearinghouse of lessons plans and best practices, an online museum of presidential campaign commercials, a database of trans-Atlantic slave voyages, an online repository of primary source documents from around the world, and a summary of resources in the El Paso Historical Society.

Facebook users may connect by “liking” the Center’s page; visitors to the blog may subscribe by email or RSS feed.

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.
