Boulder County Latino Project

Thanks to a generous CU Boulder Outreach Award aimed at “Highlighting People of Color in Colorado Classrooms,” two Department of History student interns are participating in a project to develop digital Primary Source Sets focusing on Latino history and culture for use by K-12 teachers throughout Colorado. In the fall semester 2017, undergraduate history major Cecilia Donovan and U.S. history graduate student Sierra Standish are working with K-12 teachers in Alamosa, San Luis, and Trinidad to gather and organize materials for Primary Source Sets for classroom use. These resources, each of which will cover one specific topic or theme, will then be posted on the teacher website of the Boulder County Latino History Project, joining the material already available about Boulder County. Cecilia and Sierra are working under the supervision of Department of History Professor Emerita Marjorie McIntosh and Kent Willmann, Senior Instructor in the School of Education. Professor McIntosh and Dr. Willmann wrote the grant to fund this project. They were assisted by Professor Arturo Aldama of the Department of Ethnic Studies and Professor Marcia Yonemoto of the Department of History.
