Mexican American Studies Program at UTSA sponsors a MAS Social Studies Teachers’ Academy annually during the summer months for secondary teachers in the South Texas region to learn how 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.
The Academy engages teachers in intellectually oriented readings, workshops, and discussions to increase content knowledge and pedagogical skills regarding Mexican American Studies. The Academy will include a special tour of the ITC to explore classroom resources inspired by ITC’s newest exhibit Los Tejanos. The MAS Social Studies Teachers’ Academy provides professional development hours/credit.
