CELD CONFERENCE:
COLORADO CIVICS DAY

DECEMBER 3, 2010

Colorado State Capitol

This special professional development program for teachers featured a wealth of new civic education resources and opportunities to collaborate with policy makers, legal experts, and other teachers to improve classroom practice.

Sessions provided teachers with opportunities to discuss Colorado’s updated civics standards and receive new resources from the Representative Democracy in America Project.
