The projected dates of the assignment are June 8 through July 24, 2020. The selected TRT will receive a stipend of $3,000 upon completion of program and graduate course requirements. The TRT will also receive three graduate credit hours of effort resulting from approximately 160 hours working on a major educational project, 45 hours of online coursework, discussion, course readings, and 25 hours of NPS operational experiences.
Big South Fork NRRA is looking for teachers with experience in lesson plan development and who can help create educational experiences in a variety of subject areas. Some possible projects may include creating virtual field trips, informational packets for teachers and online lesson plans and curriculum.
In addition to the major educational project and course work, the TRT will be trained in the field of interpretation. The TRT will have access to online courses about interpretation and have the opportunity to develop and present an interpretive program to visitors. The TRT will also learn the basic job duties of operating a visitor center, be involved in special events, and understand the concepts of managing an NPS site. As a TRT, your summer will be filled with new and exciting experiences that only the National Park Service can provide.
