Welcome to Colorado Council for the Social Studies
Teacher Reception at the Molly Brown House Museum
The Colorado Council for the Social Studies and National History Day Colorado invites you to attend the Teacher Reception at the Molly Brown House Museum that will be held on Thursday, September 11 from 4:30-6 PM. Meet brand new and veteran educators throughout the state, swap contact information (so that, eventually, you can swap files!), and enjoy the historical setting! This should be a fun opportunity to experience the Museum and interact with other education professionals.
Space is limited, so please RSVP to secure your spot. To RSVP, contact Kendra Black (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Please contact Elizabeth Milligan, CCSS Board, at email@example.com or Kendra Black, National History Day, with any questions, and we hope to see you there!

A recent New York Times article about the AP USHist Controversy: The New History Wars
Public Comment at State Board Meeting Aug 13
Comments about AP USHist begin at 38:33 and continue for a number of speakers after that. The first speaker is primarily complaining about state assessments and common core, but also includes complaints about AP reform.
Most of the public speakers favor the state resolution, one from CO Springs calls out the board for considering the resolution and creates an argument for supporting the new AP framework.
