This summer, Not Even Past will feature the winners of this year’s Texas History Day, the annual state-wide history fair for students grades 6-12. The event is hosted by the Texas State History Association (TSHA), an organization dedicated to promoting the the appreciation, understanding, and teaching of Texas, American, and world history throughout Texas. In honor of our new summer series, we would like to introduce you to one of the TSHA’s affiliate websites:www.TeachingTexas.org.
Teaching Texas was conceived as an online tool for educators to use to teach Texas history to primary and secondary school students. The website is the product of a collaboration between the Texas State Historical Association, the University of North Texas Library’s Portal to Texas History, Texas Heritage Online, and the Texas State Library and Archives Commission. It contains a wide range of resources that website users, institutions, and organizations have voluntarily contributed to the site. Educators can find audiovisual materials, museum exhibits, presentations, and primary and secondary sources that they can use in their own classrooms free of charge.
Not Even Past shares Teaching Texas’ goal of teaching history to a wider audience and has proudly contributed its own articles on Texas history to the website. In case you missed our piece on the history of the MacDonald Observatory or our write-up about the University of Texas at Austin’s Physics Department’s history website, you can now find them all in one place on Teaching Texas.
