Klondike Gold Rush Historical Park - Seattle, (April 12, 2014): Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park is accepting applications for teachers interested in applying for the park’s Teacher-Ranger-Teacher (TRT) Program. The application deadline is May 5, 2014. TRT is a 160-hour professional development opportunity for licensed public and private school teachers to create meaningful education experiences for students within Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park. The selected candidate can earn continuing education credits and will earn a $3,000 dollar stipend at the conclusion of their season.
Teacher-Ranger-Teacher is a national program that strives to share the rich heritage of America’s national parks by providing professional development opportunities for teachers within national parks. During the TRT’s summer season at Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park, they will develop standards-based lesson plan for students. In light of the limited transportation funding available to schools, we would like to develop a lesson plan that allows students to discover national parks in the Pacific Northwest without having to leave their classrooms. This summer, the park will host four Student Conservation Association (SCA) interns (age 18 - 25 yrs) who will work as a team to research and travel to local national parks. The goal is to produce informational materials that local, urban populations can use to plan visits to their local public lands. The TRT candidate will work with this team to develop classroom materials and lesson plans based on the SCA team’s research and experiences.
