Common Ground

Since 1989, the Common Ground Teachers Institute has been an educational collaboration of teaching faculty at the University of Houston and teachers of English from secondary schools throughout the Greater Houston metropolitan area. Common Ground, which follows a seminar model, welcomes teachers who love books and allows them to experience the pleasure of reading significant multicultural works and discussing them with colleagues who are also dedicated teachers. We invite you to spend two weeks this summer discovering new literature and revisiting the classics with professors, fellow teachers, and friends.
