Welcome Back JTOH Teams 2017-2018
A Retrospective of Race, Culture and Civil Rights
Welcome to the 2017-2018 Journey Through Our Heritage season. This year we will be partnering with the History Colorado Center to discuss topics that are relevant to our youth. We have some very exciting and innovative projects planned for the upcoming year! Our theme this year is, “Celebrating Our Heritage Through Our Culture, Language, and Oral Traditions”. This theme was chosen to coincide with the History Colorado Centers 2017/18 exhibitions. Our program will focus on the Race (fall 2017) and the 1968 exhibit and Chicano Movement exhibit (spring 2018) at the museum. These exhibits will help us create a dialogue with our youths about our collective journey into the 21st century. In turn we hope that this dialogue will motivate and inspire them to become leaders of tomorrow. Leaders, who are educated and informed about our history as well as the complexity of cultural world issues.
As part of the JTOH team partnership with the History Colorado Center all participating schools will be given free admission for field trips to visit the upcoming exhibitions. If schools are in need of transportation cost, the MSU Denver JTOH program will be offering stipends to help offset the cost of transportation. In order to take advantage of this opportunity we are asking all schools who wish to visit the exhibitions to contact us directly with dates and times so we may set up the field trips.
