We the People Projects in Texas

The development of residential teacher institutes, a poster series, and related education programs to enable Texas teachers to expand their knowledge of American history and culture; travelling exhibitions; radio and television collaborations, and a request for proposals for exhibits, public lectures, media programs, and cultural heritage topics to reach out to the adult, out-of-school public.

With support from the 2009 We the People Project Grant for State Humanities Councils, Humanities Texas will conduct two major teacher institutes examining important constitutional issues in our nation's history; distribute a series of posters with related programs and curricular materials supporting U.S. history instruction in Texas schools; issue a request for proposals encouraging organizations across the state to initiate projects exploring "We the People" topics and themes; and develop exhibits, public lectures, media programs, and a cultural heritage initiative, all reaching Texas's adult, out-of-school public, enhancing their understanding of local, state, and national history and culture.
