District 11 Teacher Workshop

In the middle of August, TPS @ Metro State traveled a few miles south to partner with Colorado Springs School District 11 and Social Studies Facilitator/AVID District Director Joan Jahelka. The workshops, split into high school teachers on the 14th and middle school teachers on the 16th, focused on our stalwarts of inquiry — both Stripling and Dual —, and a

tour of the Library of Congress homepage, along with ample time for individual exploration. Both workshops also featured a visit from one of our founding fathers, Benjamin Franklin (Chris Lowell).

Wyoming Regional Workshops

Sandwiched in between two local Colorado Springs workshops was a regional event in the state of Wyoming which consisted of two separate 2-day workshops (Casper & Cheyenne) focusing on inquiry and National History Day, and its topic for this year, "Turning Points in History: People, Ideas, Events".

Along with two full days of TPS content and activities, the Wyoming teachers were treated to a special presentation by Associate Director of the American Heritage Center, Rick Ewig. Rick provided an excellent

overview of some local digital archives, along with presenting a very clever activity based on the Hollywood movie Hidalgo (2004) -- read more here.
