Enriching History in Colorado (EHCO)

This project partners San Luis Valley BOCS with the Department of History, Government and Philosophy at Adams State College (ASC), Colorado Historical Society's Fort Garland Museum and San Luis Valley Historical Society in a professional development program for American history teachers in a 10-county area. Included are: week-long, on-campus summer institutes, follow-up visits and coaching by historians, colloquia, field trips led by scholars, outreach to students and parents, development of a history community in the San Luis Valley, teacher memberships in the National Council for History Education, and financial assistance for conferences and classroom materials.. Travel workshops are built around the founding of the republic, Civil War, and westward movement. Colloquia explore World War II, the Cold War and Great Depression.
