MAS Social Studies Teachers Academy

Bookmark and Share

The Academy is targeted at providing instructional tools to create a social studies curriculum with Chicano/Mexican American content. We hope to give the best historical information for instructors to take back to their students and enrich their classrooms.

  • Learn content area of instruction of Mexican American history and social studies
  • Meet TEKS content curriculum knowledge
  • Acquire instructional tools to create a social studies curriculum


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.
