Colorado State University (Fort Collins, CO 80521-2807)
Dawn Bastian Paschal (Project Director: July 2018 to present)
Colorado Encyclopedia, Phase II

The production of 300 entries and 75 annotated guides for K-12 educators to be added to the online Colorado Encyclopedia, providing authoritative information on the state's history and culture, with new content emphasizing the history of political and civic engagement in the state.

This project is an expansion and enhancement of Colorado Encyclopedia (CE), an online reference work on the Centennial State. It builds on the successful first phase that produced a website containing 700 authoritative articles on Colorado history and culture. Twenty-five percent of them have been leveled for 4th-, 8th, and 10th-grade readers, with co-curricular resource sets for teachers. Colorado State University in collaboration with Colorado Humanities and the University Press of Colorado will produce 300 new CE essays that will enable readers to take a “deeper dive” into the encyclopedia’s humanities themes, especially with an eye toward showing the inter-connections between entries and themes.
