Eddie Robles, who teaches world cultures and social studies at Austin Middle School, attended the U.S. Constitution organized by Humanities Texas, which offered teachers the opportunity to work closely with leading scholars, studying major aspects of the U.S. Constitution. Fifty teachers from around the state participated in the Sep. 13 event.
The distinguished faculty included Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Gordon S. Wood of Brown University, Michael Les Benedict of The Ohio State University and Kenneth Stevens of Texas Christian University.
The workshop was held at the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History.
“We were delighted to hold this program in Fort Worth,” said Humanities Texas Executive Director Michael L. Gillette. “Bringing teachers together to learn from leading scholars and from each other is an effective way to ensure that Texas students continue to receive the best possible educational opportunities.”
The workshop was made possible with support from the Sid W. Richardson Foundation, as well as from State of Texas and the National Endowment for the Humanities We the People initiative.
