Description

History is exciting -- helping us relive pivotal moments in our community's, country's or world's history. However, it doesn't always feel 'real' to those who either weren't alive to see it, or who don't have a video or other electronic media to help them relive and experience it. In William Anderson's Ethnic Studies class at Martin Luther King, Jr. Early College High School, history comes alive. Mr. Anderson asks students to step back in time and become part of that history by diving into research and asking, 'What would I do differently?' Denver Public Schools is embracing the Colorado Academic Standards to ensure students are equipped for college and careers in the 21st century. In our classrooms, our teachers are implementing the standards into creative, real-world learning lessons that help students move beyond memorization and push them to think critically—to support their conclusions with evidence, analyze and critique complex texts across multiple subjects, and to problem solve with effective communication, collaboration and technology skills.
