Education Programs

TSHA’s education programs, which were begun in 1939, encourage and improve the teaching of history—especially Texas history—in Texas schools statewide.

A continuum of programs and services for students, teachers, and other adults inspire dynamic learning through hands-on activities, research, and engagement. These offerings begin at the elementary level and continue through the secondary and collegiate levels to the general public. TSHA is the epicenter of Texas history education with combined programs that reach nearly 180,000 elementary, secondary, and college students and more than 1,000 educators each year.
