Topic ideas and resources
Click here for fantastic Colorado topics from our partners
- 100 Leaders in World History Project: A new, free, online resource for students and teachers sponsored by Kenneth E. Behring. It is designed to help students think about the idea of leadership. The resource contains profiles of the 100 leaders, classroom resources, downloadable posters, lessons, and research links. In November the site will become interactive, asking students, teachers, and the general public to rate the leaders on five characteristics. Check it out today at www.100leaders.org.
- Rocky Mountain PBS: Discover Rocky Mountain PBS LearningMedia, a powerful online resource developed especially for PreK-12 educators. LearningMedia provides instant access to thousands of classroom-ready, curriculum-targeted interactives, videos, images and audio clips from PBS and public media partners. Best of all, it’s free.
- Center for Colorado and the West at the Auraria Library: Check out these incredible resource guides pertaining to Colorado mining, Colorado Hispanic studies, and Colorado Native American studies.
- Teaching with Primary Sources Colorado: Themed resource can prove especially useful in the classroom. Our friends at TPS suggested the following in relationship to the 2015 theme: Abraham Lincoln, Flight and Early Aviators, the Lewis and Clark Expedition, and Women's History.
