A Floresville teacher traveled to Austin to participate in a one-day teacher workshop on Texas history Feb. 10, sponsored by Humanities Texas and the Texas State Historical Association (TSHA).

Janet Martin, who teaches social studies at Floresville Alternative School, attended the workshop, which offered teachers the opportunity to work closely with leading scholars, studying major aspects of Texas history in the 20th century.

Educational specialists from Humanities Texas, TSHA, and the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum introduced participants to the instructional resources provided by their respective institutions.

The workshop was held at the Byrne-Reed House, the Humanities Texas headquarters in Austin. Special emphasis was placed on newly added or revised standards in the state’s Texas history curriculum.

The oldest learned society in the state, the Texas State Historical Association seeks to foster the appreciation, understanding, and teaching of the rich and unique history of Texas and, by example and through programs and activities, encourage and promote research, preservation, and publication of historical material affecting the state of Texas.
