Teaching the Tough TEKS for Grade 8 - Law-Related Education

In the 8th grade Teaching the Tough TEKS session the Law-Related Education team identified TEKS that are challenging to American History students to design this two-day workshop. This institute is designed to target low performing 8th grade TEKS and to complement existing curriculum. Working with scholars and consultants, participants will learn and receive valuable content, methods, and resources. Content presentations are reinforced with practical activities which will be made available to participants free of charge.
