Texts and Teachers

Texts and Teachers is a curriculum-development program and university/high school collaboration that has been operating since 2000. The project offers dual-credit linked classes to more than 400 high school students in ten area high schools each year. High school teachers are involved in designing courses to be taught, making them partners in a shared educational project. Participating teachers work with a UW faculty member to design a new course in a summer workshop that is then taught on a regular basis at both the UW and in high schools, with visits back-and-forth by UW faculty and the high school students.
