History Colorado partners with universities, libraries, and other leading educational institutions to provide professional development opportunities for history and social studies educators.
What educators are saying
"One of the highlights of this school year has been collaborating with History Colorado on a professional development day filled with learning, enjoyment and inspiration. Working in collaboration with History Colorado, this day featured a talk by State Historian William Convery, hands-on learning with School and Teacher Program Developer April Legg, time to explore the exhibits, and opportunities to consider St. Mary's Academy's nearly 150-year history as it relates to events in our state's history. Throughout the planning process, I was very impressed by the professionalism and enthusiasm of Director JJ Rutherford, Director of Education, whose frequent communication and attention to details made this a day teachers rave about. It was an inspiring day and we look forward to similar collaborations in the future!" -- Regina Drey, St. Mary's Academy Historian
"An innovative museum like the Colorado History Museum inspires teachers to innovate in the classroom by taking the time to deconstruct the experience and then restructure it in a way that all people can learn from." -- Middle School educator
