This is a one-day teacher workshop on Friday, November 3, 2017, From 9am to 4pm, lunch will be provided, and all participants will earn continuing education units. A limited number of seats are available for this event so please sign up as soon as possible. Priority will be given to the school districts within the heritage area boundaries of Alamosa, Conejos, and Costilla Counties, but all San Luis Valley teachers and administrators are invited to attend, whether currently employed, retired, or in training.

This workshop is a great opportunity to learn about and share what is already being done and what can be done in the future regarding place-based/community-based learning in the K-12 school districts of the San Luis Valley. The SLV’s wonderful and unique past make it a great location for students to learn about archaeology, Native American histories, Hispanic history and culture, adobe architecture, our natural environment, conservation, and much more.

The Sangre de Cristo National Heritage Area has partnered with Adams State University and the University of Colorado at Boulder to bring trainers experienced in creating curricula in line with Colorado state standards that focus on the local culture, history, and heritage. Come learn about the heritage area’s collection of primary sources, research, and oral history videos that will be available to local teachers for creating place-based lesson plans and the lesson plans that are available for immediate implementation.
