K-12 Educators' Workshop: Teaching Westward Expansion

Saturday, January 7, 2017: 9:30 AM-12:30 PM
(Gates Meeting Room, Denver Public Library, 10 W 14th Avenue Parkway)

Sponsored by the Advanced Placement Program of the College Board

The traditional narrative of westward expansion can inadvertently oversimplify the complexity of the past. This workshop will explore primary sources participants can use to add interest, vitality, improbability, and surprise to conventional approaches to the history of westward settlement. Workshop facilitators Patricia Nelson Limerick, Center of the American West; Brenda Santos, Achievement First; and Fritz Fischer, University of Northern Colorado will guide small groups through this interactive workshop.

No charge; because space is limited , free advance registration is required.
