Excellence by Design
This school district encompasses much of downtown San Antonio. The district partners include the University of Texas-San Antonio, KLRN-TV, the National Council for History Education, the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation, and School Vision. The project will work with 5th, 8th, and high school U.S. history teachers to help prepare their students to achieve success on the statewide test in U. S. History. A total of 245 teachers will participate in both summer and academic year sessions, which will stress content knowledge, but will also discuss viable ways to teach this knowledge in a way that will incorporate students' interests.
