The last couple of summers have brought a lot of dialogue over the issues of civil rights in America and our students will have questions, comments and concerns.  ESC Region 13 will be providing an opportunity for teachers to learn more about how Civil Rights is presented in the curriculum by analyzing primary sources from the educators at on September 13th.   We are allowing space for 15 teachers, preferably those who teach American & Texas history, to join us.   If you are interested, please complete the following form and share your name and content you will be teaching this year.  Information about registration will be sent out in August if you are selected.
