The Community College Humanities Association will sponsor two one-week workshops for 50 K-12 school teachers at The Alamo, a site, symbolic of personal and political independence and a monument to American individualism. Each six-day workshop (June 21- June 26 and June 28 - July 3, 2009), will be devoted to new scholarship related to the Alamo, the history, culture, literature and the symbolic importance of the struggle for personal and political freedom. The workshops will feature prominent scholars who will address Spanish colonial expansionism, Mexican settlement; and other historic issues including the role of women and slavery. K-12 teachers, selected from a national competition will have the opportunity to conduct guided research using resources housed at the Daughters of the Republic of Texas collection, the Institute of Texan Cultures, the LBJ Presidential Library and other institutions to develop curriculum and teaching materials for infusion into classroom exercises.
