Theodore Roosevelt & Water in the West
Teacher Workshop

In one of our biggest collaborations to date, TPS @ Metro State, along with five co-sponsors: History Colorado, Colorado Humanities, Denver Post Educational Services, Metro State's One World One Water Center, Metropolitan State University of Denver, and the Theodore Roosevelt Center, held a two-day event which focused on the all-too-important issue of water, while offering a unique perspective that looked through the lens of the 26th President of the United States, Theodore Roosevelt.

North Central Region Gifted & Talented

For this workshop, TPS @ Metro State travelled to Longmont, Colorado as part of a workshop titled, " North Central Region Gifted & Talented Workshop: Primary Sources & Inquiry." Over 60 educators from around Northern Colorado attended the workshop. Taking place over two days in the middle of June, participants were introduced to the Library of Congress website, while focusing on various collections, such as American Memory and Prints and Photographs.

Particular attention was then given to the creation of Annotated Resource Sets, multiple forms of inquiry, and the use of technologies in the classroom.
