Summer Teacher Institute, July 29-August 2, 2013
Teachers are invited to explore Boston's Trails to Freedom and meet some famous, and not so famous, Bostonians whose contributions helped to bring the United States from British colonial rule to an independent country, and onto the brink of Civil War.
