History Awareness Workshops
History Awareness Workshops bring educators together to gain practical knowledge and insight into their teaching strategies as well as to share their experiences with other educators. Each workshop focuses on informative content and practical classroom applications.
History Awareness Workshops will be presented regionally by request for individual schools, school districts, regional service centers, or other educational entities within Texas with several offerings each year. Topics will focus on teaching Texas history, working with our existing programs such as Junior Historians and/or Texas History Day, and other requested topics.
Teachers and their students are invited to participate in an upcoming Smithsonian Institution exhibit, Journey Stories. Teachers will recieve materials related to the teaching and use of oral history and project based learning in the classroom, a digital recording device, and up to $80.00 substitute reimbursement for their school. Interested teachers must register to attend the teacher workshop in their area. Journey Stories has been made possible in Texas by the Texas State Historical Association. Journey Stories is part of Museum on Main Street, a collabration between the Smithsonian Institution and the Texas State Historical Association. Support for Museum on Main Street has been provided by the United States Congress.
