National History Day in Colorado is proud to have received a grant from Teaching with Primary Sources at Metropolitab State University of Denver to enhance and improve our educator workshops and to train masterteachers who can mentor new and junior NHDC teachers, and who will, as part of this grant, become TPSTeachers' Network members.
This year's teacher workshop cycle will consist of your choice of two hybrid workshops, with one in-person dayand four evenings of virtual instruction to follow. These will culminate in a Master Teacher Showcase for all participants in early November where participants will present their deliverable to the cohort and receive aMaster Teacher designation.
Application for one of the teacher workshops comes with the expectation that educators attend the entirety of their selected workshop and attend the Showcase and present a primary resource set along with lesson plans and learning activities. Grants and stipends for travel and accommodation will be available. Professional development hours will be awarded.
