Teachers attend Humanities Texas Institute
(Created: Friday, July 11, 2008)
"Angela Geiger, Kimberly Pope and Melanie Ringman of Coppell Middle School North joined outstanding teachers from across the state earlier this month at "From Disunion to Empire: The United States, 1850-1900," a pair of institutes exploring U.S. history in the second half of the nineteenth century.
Organized by Humanities Texas, the University of North Texas (UNT) and Trinity University, "From Disunion to Empire" drew 82 teachers to the UNT and Trinity campuses for four days of seminars, lectures, workshops and visits to local cultural institutions.
"I attended to get a deeper understanding of humanities to use in my classroom to become a better teacher for my students," said Ringman, who teaches humanities, history, and language arts. "I am so excited for next year."
Could be good for teachers to plan for next summer.
