With NEH support, the University of Texas at El Paso developed Tales from the Chihuahuan Desert: Borderlands Narratives about Identity and Binationalism, a professional development program for educators. Over the course of two weeks, educators representing grades 6-12 explore the literature and narratives of the borderlands at the El Paso-Ciudad Juárez metroplex. Participants leave the program with a more nuanced understanding of the histories and cultures of an often misunderstood and stereotyped region that is pivotal to the broader American story, as well as implementable techniques to bring the region and its storytelling into their classrooms.
