Graduate credit, substitute reimbursement (available to the first 100 requests), and breakfast and lunch will be provided! ...
District 70 Workshop - Pueblo
In late October, TPS-Colorado traveled to Pueblo, CO for a two-day Level I workshop focused on exploring the vast online resources available through the Library of Congress. Fifteen District 70 educators of various disciplines were quick to find common pedagogical approaches among their various grade levels and subjects, all catalyzed through their work
with primary sources! This was TPS-Colorado's first collaboration with District 70. Local liason and CSU-Pueblo Professor of History, Jonathan Rees, worked diligently through local channels to bring together a great cross-section of Pueblo teachers (many seen below) for an exciting two days of exploration and revelation. One teacher even arrived armed with a magnifying glass, ready for discovery and inquiry at its finest.
Evergreen School District (WA)
At the end of October, Evergreen School District in Vancouver, Washington, hosted a special 2-day workshop that focused on integrating primary sources with the The Common Core - Literacy Standards. In attendance were over 20 middle school teachers from around the district. The incorporation of the Common Core Standards
will continue to be an important venture as more and more states implement them into their curricula
