TeachingTexas.org is a collaborative project between the Texas State Historical Association, the University of North Texas Library's Portal to Texas History, and Texas Heritage Online, hosted by the Texas State Library and Archives Commission. Funding was made possible in part by Humanities Texas, a state partner of the National Endowment for the Humanities. The purpose of this site is to provide a tool for educators, which brings together in one place the diverse resources for teaching Texas Studies in order to both save time and promote awareness of what is available. To ensure that the material listed in this site is appropriate and catalogued correctly, all items are given a brief review by a certified educator prior to posting. No specific endorsement of the content or views found in listed resources is intended by the Texas State Historical Association or its Partners.
To help create ongoing communication with teachers regarding the resources on this site, there are two tools at your disposal. The Discussion Board allows you to post questions related to items you cannot find or to note the value of material from the site you have used. This tool creates an additional mechanism to locate what is needed, share what works, and help us ensure that the site continues to meet the needs of educators.
The second tool is Texas Insights, an e-newsletter produced by the Texas State Historical Association to promote new additions to the site, effective pedagogical strategies, and share timely opportunities. Together, the Discussion Board and Texas Insights serve to ensure that TeachingTexas.org meets the needs of educators and keeps everyone apprised of the ever growing list of resources on the site.
