Welcome to Doing History, Keeping the Past

Welcome to the Doing History/Keeping the Past Project, where we believe that history is something you do. It is our goal to engage students in creating their own historical understanding by using and interpreting a variety of primary sources and secondary materials, then by sharing their understanding with others by writing, speaking, drawing, acting out, or otherwise presenting what they have learned. Funding for this project was provided in part by grants from the Colorado Historical Society, State Historical Fund.
