Self-Directed Study: Using the Minute Man Messenger and the park’s website, www.nps.gov/mima, individual teachers or small groups of teachers will select a series of guided park tours and special events to attend within a specific period of time, usually in summer, between the end of June and Labor Day, for a total of at least 8 – 10 hours.


Friends of Minute Man National Park will sponsor a scholar to research the lives of “Patriots of Color,” Massachusetts slaves and former slaves who fought during the American Revolution, beginning with the Battle of Lexington and Concord on April 19, 1775. Among the results, the research will support the creation by a teacher of a lesson plan about the “Patriots of Color."


One position is available at Minute Man National Historical Park this summer. The TRT experience is designed to equal approximately 160 hours of work by the teacher. The actual schedule is flexible. We are looking for a teacher to develop a lesson plan on the topic of Patriots of Color, TRTs earn a stipend of $3,000 and earn 3 graduate course credits through CU Denver. Application due May 30, 2014
