Educators, join us at the Alamo for Spotlight: The Alamo, offered both onsite and virtual. Earn CPE credits in this Professional Development workshop designed for the Texas History classroom. 

After the months of sustaining a harsh winter and few supplies, the Texians in San Antonio decide to fortify the old Alamo fort. News reaches them that Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna is on the march, and so with the help of engineer Green B Jameson and the command of James C Neill, the Alamo is fortified. After the Battle of Bexar, many of the Texians break off on a futile expedition to Matamoros, hoping to cut off Mexican supplies coming from the coast. Meanwhile Bowie returns to San Antonio, and share command of the Alamo with William B. Travis when Neill leaves. David Crockett enters San Antonio as well. Delegates had been sent to Washington on the Brazos as representatives of the colonies at the convention. On February 23, Santa Anna besieges the Alamo, and on March 2, the delegates sign a Declaration of Independence. On March 6, the Alamo falls.

Instructional sessions and tour are led by Ernesto Rodriguez, Senior Curator, The Alamo and Kevin Malcom, Lead Interpreter, Washington on The Brazos State Historic Site.

These onsite/virtual sessions combined provide:

  • Instructional Materials
  • Continuing Professional Education (CPE) hours
  • Teaching strategies
  • Connections to TEKS
  • Live Q&A
  • Applied knowledge with self-study techniques
