Colorado Geographic Alliance

Developing Lesson Plans

The Colorado Geographic Alliance and the Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum collaborated to produce lesson plans supporting the new exhibit on the history of the Pikes Peak Region, The Story of Us, which includes a wealth of historic maps and photographs. This workshop developed lesson plans for each aspect of the exhibit - participants structured ways to guide teachers to explore the online components of the exhibit, developed mapping exercises, and created annotated resource sets. Here is a link to materials from the Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum workshop in June 2017.


Integrating the Social Studies Across World History

Enhance your skill in teaching the core concepts and tools from history, geography, economics and civics that are emphasized in Colorado's seventh grade Social Studies Standards. The Program for Teaching East Asia at the University of Colorado, Colorado Geographic Alliance, and the Colorado Council for Economic Education collaborate to bring this day-long workshop to middle school teachers. A subject-area expert will help you understand how each discipline might approach the teaching of World History, using the Silk Road as a common topic. Presentations will blend content and pedagogy and you will leave with sample lessons, resources and ideas for activities, including trade, primary sources, GeoHistoGrams and a look at Silk Road communities in modern times. High school teachers of World History are welcome! Saturday, September 9, 8:30 am to 4:30 pm in Denver. Register at the Colorado Council for Economic Education website.
