Mexican American Studies Program at UTSA invites your schools to participate in their 2016 MAS Social Studies Teachers’ Academy, June 20 – 24.
The Academy engages secondary teachers in intellectually oriented readings, workshops, and discussions to increase content knowledge and pedagogical skills to integrate the Mexican American experience for Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills in social studies as well as meet the specific content area for Mexican American Studies as a special topics course.
In addition, the Academy will be held at UTSA’s Institute of Texan Cultures offering teachers a special tour to explore classroom resources inspired by ITC’s newest exhibit Los Tejanos. The MAS Social Studies Teachers’ Academy provides professional development hours/credit.
UTSA is a campus on the rise! We believe in students learning their past in order to excel in their future. We invite teachers from your district to participate in this amazing one-week event.
Feel free to contact us with questions or concerns. We hope to see educators from your district experience this unique one week event.
We hope to hear from you soon,
