War in the Pacific National Historical Park and Pacific Historic Parks hosts professional development workshop titled, "Teaching Methods: Parks as Classrooms." The workshop will engage participants to use places in their national park as resources for studying local and national history, science, culture, and geography. Park rangers and Pacific Historic Parks Education Team will provide sample lesson plan guides, share opportunities for student service-learning, and give guided tours of park sites.
Field Trips and Outreach

They can also choose to bring their national park to their classroom for an outreach program. Education programs are free of charge. Park brochures are available at the T.
