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. Leading scholars join education staff from the premier historic sites in Boston to make this time period come to life for Boston-area teachers. Recommended for grades 3-8, but all teachers are welcome. Two graduate credit or 45 PDP's available. For information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org . Support for this program is made possible by the Colonial Society of Massachusetts.
Past topics for the Teacher Institute have included:
